Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO examined whether the Army has: (1) evaluated the implications of the changed military threat the United States is likely to face for training its combat forces; and (2) developed an adequate training strategy to respond to new threats.

GAO found that the Army: (1) is reviewing the results of its recent assessment of the changed threat's impact on its training strategy; (2) does not anticipate any major revisions to its training strategy and believes that its current strategy is adequate to respond to a wide variety of threats; (3) will continue to train combat forces to meet a Soviet threat and can adjust its training to depict virtually any type of threat scenario; and (4) is revising its classroom training curricula in response to the changed threat.
