      04:02 PDA Bulletin -- "Building Army Capabilities" briefing on Army
      growth plans

      "Building Army Capabilities", draft U.S. Army PowerPoint briefing,
      not classified, 28 January 2004. Posted on the Defense Strategy
      Review Page at http://www.comw.org/qdr/

      This is a draft of the briefing by the U.S. Army for the National
      Command Authority referred to by Secretary Rumsfeld in his testimony
      to Congress on 4 February 2004. It deals with plans for the next five
      years to use a combination of wartime and Congressional authority to
      increase the size of the active component Army and decrease and
      reorganize the reserve component Army toward the goal of a "brigade
      based" modular Army better suited to the "GWOT".

      The briefing includes specification by type, number, and timeline of
      increases in brigades and Army endstrength; a price tag of $20
      billion for fifteen additional brigades; charts of mobilization times
      for different type and size of units; number and type of new units to
      be stood up in the active component; a chart of the ground force
      rotation plan for OIF and OEF through February 2005; and a reference
      to "option to cancel Stop Loss" in FY06.
