Annual Luncheon Celebrates the Army's Birthday

The annual luncheon celebrating the birthday of the U.S. Army was held in June at Tobyhannna Army Depot. Brig. Gen. Wilbur Wolf, USA (Ret.), was the guest speaker. During his remarks, he observed that the old Army adage of being able to move, shoot and communicate wasn't good enough any more. He predicted that the next war will be in an environment of a threatened or disabled network. The general observed that the Army has become network dependent and a "Dark Sky" scenario is likely. He urged the Army to "train [for this scenario] before the network goes down and the lights go out" and postulated that there must be a training standard to create soldiers who are "digital master gunners" as well as "cave man fighters." Gen. Wolf's insightful comments were well received.
