Military History Comparative Analysis essay of the Army during the post-Vietnam timeframe to the processes used today. Compare the processes used to change the Army during the post-Vietnam timeframe to the processes used today. Use one of the Big 5 as the basis to conduct the comparison. JCIDS, DAS, PPBE, TAA, TAP, etc. did not exist during the post-Vietnam era. So how did the Army make decisions and how is that different than today? Why does it matter? This is not a history paper of what happened in the past, nor is it a paper that acts like the current processes were used in the past. It is a comparative analysis.
How did the Army decide what strategic changes needed to take place? How was it different than what happens today? What is your analysis of this difference/these differences? The preceding is an example for looking at strategic guidance. Ensure you address each of the ELOs. You must address materiel and organizational change in your essay. Ensure you do not simply regurgitate today’s process; that is not a comparative analysis between two different things.
