Current Army leadership has begun to take a new and different approach to the planning of a more modern military. While many past modernization plans have failed, the existing idea has five main points that will set the Army up for success. Money is always a necessary component needed to upgrade past equipment, and the Army’s budget has increased by 20% since President Trump took office. The members in the Department of the Army are also all focused on the same goals and have the same plans to reach them. General McConville has commented on how the Army also knows where improvements are needed, with everyone knowing which programs are at the top of their game and which ones are at the bottom of the list.
