The chief purpose of specialized Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) force is executed missions within the United States and all over the world in combating military weapons that can cause mass destruction of property as well as the lives of people. The force is committed to protect and maintain peace in the United States and globally at a large by limiting the supply of weapons that can endanger the lives of the public in case the weapons land on the hands of the wrong people.
Based on the available Army strategic priorities; I would highly recommend for an Army that has the ability to change and cope with the challenging situations they are facing in their military duties. This is the only priority among the five strategic priorities that appreciates change is inevitable and for that reason, the future holds a lot of uncertainties and therefore the Army should strive to be ready to operate efficiently under circumstances of uncertainties. The defense forces should be prudent in predicting the new emerging threats the Nation is likely to face and for that reason formulate mitigation measures to curb the attack before it occurs. The world has become a complex environment due to increased production of weapons that endanger the lives of people and animals[footnoteRef:2]. That means developing an Army that is flexible enough to respond effectively to the emerging threats to security matters should be the top priority in order to achieve peace and harmony in the United States and therefore the other strategic goals will thrive well in presence of peace and harmony. Dynamic army force will enable the leaders to make the critical judgment under the unfamiliar conditions which will pave way for other strategic priorities since any unseen obstacle will be easily spotted and effectively counteracted before it results in a significant loss.
The Army Strategic Planning is undertaking a number of measures to enhance the capability of dynamic army force in the advent of changing war tactics. The following are the number of measures that the Army is undertaking in an attempt to successfully adopts this strategy. First, reforms are being made in Army profession in the 21st century. This is evident through, retaining the gains of the previous decades and also eliminating the harmful leadership and the negative effects of long experienced war
Army leaders who depicted professional leadership and skills are been retained in order to disseminate the same values and skills to the current Army in order to facilitate accurate and critical judgment making the ability to under challenging times of uncertainties. Secondly, a lot of learning programmes are been established to educate the leaders for an uncertain future. The endeavor is undertaken in conjunction with other multinational and inter-agency groups. Lastly, leaders are being developed who are competent enough in Cyberspace. The leaders are expected to understand and be swift enough to adapt to constantly volatile capabilities and risks. It is highly stressed that while recruiting, educating training and retaining cyberspace personnel in the entire Army, it will be very crucial to create a strong Army where the force will have a great deep of expertise in cyberspace as well as cyber-electromagnetic activities.
Developing persevering soldiers, dynamic leaders, and united army force guided by the code of ethics outlined under the army force code of regulations that will ensure successful accomplishment of different kinds of missions under unfamiliar conditions and changing environments. This is the required capability that needs to be given the highest priority for the Army to operate efficiently and in a complex world. A lot of efforts are needed to support the mentioned strategy by the Army because the strategy demands a collaborative effort across the established Armed forces. Secondly, future Army force has to formulate training programmes that will equip the Army personnel with the right skills and knowledge that will enable the Army to remain resilient under challenging times and endeavor to accomplish the set mission. In addition to that, efforts should be put in place in order to enlighten how forces and those that hold Army leadership positions combine the military resources across war-fighting activities an attempt to achieve the set mission.
There are several improved capabilities that the Army can develop as part addressing the capability that can be used by the Army. The following is one of the improved capabilities that the Army should develop in an attempt of curbing the hurdles confronting the discharge of their duties. The institution should consider optimizing human performance as well as ensuring the each soldier is assigned to the right assignment at the correct time consequently maximizing the possibility of accomplishing the mission as per the planned schedule. Institutional as well as operational Army should endeavor to develop creative leaders and increase their performance which will enhance the success of the missions that the Army will undertake. Creative leaders can be developed through subjecting trainee on repetitive training programmes joined with self-study, thorough and careful education all geared at developing innovative leaders that will be resilient and effective in challenging times. Leaders are known to impart trust among their fellow leaders and soldiers. Additionally, they develop a spirit of togetherness that fuels the urge of taking the initiative that conforms to the goal of targeting to achieve the mission despite the obstacles that might hinder the success of accomplishing the mission[footnoteRef:3]. Leaders along with Soldiers are accountable to each other and the code of ethics set that demands soldiers to remain persevering and maintain moral character as they perform Army duties.
Finally, the implications of potential non-material solution approach recommendations aim at evaluating how it analysis the military combats with emphasize an action warfare and joined air ground activities that aim at evaluating whether there is better an optimal way that can solve a current capability gap. The first implication is that the training analysis evaluates how the Army forces are strategized to fight, groups, air wings task forces and other army groups that are playing a crucial role in contributing to the accomplishment of the mission planned. Secondly, the material analysis explores the entire required equipment and systems that are vital to the forces to facilitate effective execution of the set mission and if new systems are required to meet the existing gap. Next, the leadership and education is the key component that needs to address.
