Adjutants General Applaud Army Commission Report

The Adjutants General Association of the United States today released the following statement by Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis of Louisiana, the AGAUS president.

"The Adjutants General Association of the United States (AGAUS) recognizes the tremendous job of the National Commission on the Future of the Army and their efforts to execute their mandate from Congress in a thoughtful, deliberate and impartial manner.

"While we may not agree with all of the Commission's recommendations, we agree that an Army of 980,000 is the minimally sufficient force to meet current and anticipated missions at an acceptable level of national risk.

"We are in the process of completing a thoughtful analysis of the commission's 63 recommendations and their impacts on the active-component Army, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve.

"While the work of the commission is greatly appreciated, the difficult work is yet to be done.  Transforming the Army of today into the Army we need tomorrow will take time, objectivity, compromise and unity of effort. This effort must be accomplished as One Army, integrating all three components in the study, design and implementation of the way ahead. AGAUS stands ready to be an integral partner in the One Army solution.

"In a fiscally constrained and tumultuous national security environment, the undertaking of this challenge will be hard, but we must commit to move forward together in the best interest of our Nation."

A Conversation with Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis (National Guard Magazine)

Maj. Gen. Glenn H. Curtis presides over an association small in numbers but large in stature. The 54 members of the Adjutants General Association of the United States are collectively responsible for nearly half of the Army’s combat power and more than a third of the Air Force’s aerial refueling, strategic lift and fighter capability. That responsibility gives AGAUS clout in many quarters of the Pentagon and on Capitol Hill. National Guard sat down with Curtis, the association’s newly elected president, to discuss AGAUS perspectives on the issues that confront the entire force.
