    FORCE 2025: Informing the Army’s future structure

    Tasks must match geography... For both Reg and Res. Weekend exercises can be fun with Reg F units. When the 2Lt duty officer reports on Monday morning that the Res unit brought out their Honorary Colonel, and that the retired LGen, former Army Commander, had a great time, the email chains...
