THE ARMY (continued): • Did you know that Army soldiers no longer roll up their sleeves? In order to ensure a more uniform look, the brass decided that the sleeves would no longer be worn rolled up, even in the summer. First, this had a practical reason as it helped reduce sun and other skin injuries. Second, it was all part of the Army’s current initiative to instill a warrior attitude in the soldiers of always being prepared for combat. Most infantry units had never authorized the sleeves to be rolled up. Lastly, the design of the new ACU’s made rolling up the sleeve extremely impractical. • The largest army component is the U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), which executes the land defense of the U.S., provides military support to civil authorities, and trains, sustains, mobilizes and protects strategic land forces worldwide. • The U.S. Army has over 400,000 enlisted soldiers and 76,000 ofﬁcers.

• With headquarters in Atlanta, Ga., the U.S. Army Reserve consists of about 250,000 soldiers. It ﬁelds a large portion of the support staff, especially in civil affairs, engineering, transportation and maintenance. • The Army National Guard ﬁelds approximately 370,000 troops (not including Alaska, Hawaii and Guam). It can provide eight combat divisions, one armored cavalry regiment and 21 combat brigades. • The secretary of the Army is the civilian head of the United States Army and reports to the secretary of defense for operational authority. He is named by the president and approved by the Senate. • The Canadian Forces were heavily involved in World War II and the Korean War, but since then, from the 1950s on, Canadian soldiers have generally been used in peacekeeping missions, assisting the United Nations.
