“It’s important to know we are a nation at war right now, and our Army remains globally engaged,” Allyn said. “Today, over 8,000 Soldiers are in Afghanistan, providing enabling support to an emerging force, fighting a persistent insurgent threat.”
More than 33,000 Soldiers are assigned or allocated to Europe “to assure our allies and to deter a potentially grave threat to freedom,” he continued.
Supporting the fight around the globe means having the best technologies for Soldiers to ensure overmatch against future adversaries in an increasingly complex and dangerous world where the threat is often “elusive and ambiguous,” he said.
This environment will place a premium on unmanned systems, lethal technologies and rapid maneuver capabilities that the new Stryker system exemplifies, Allyn concluded.
