Gen. Carter Ham (USA Ret.), president and CEO of the Association of the U.S. Army, discusses the progress of modernization at Army Futures Command and why he’s optimistic about its efforts.


The Army’s unfunded requirements list for fiscal year 2020 is filled with projects that fit the branch’s six modernization priorities, including speeding up the schedule for buying a future long-range assault helicopter and efforts to make Stryker combat vehicles more lethal. Gen. Carter Ham, (USA Ret.), president and CEO of the Association of the U.S. Army, says the modernization efforts at the service’s Futures Command should give optimism to many. “What gives me the greatest confidence is the commitment of the Army’s most senior leaders. The secretary, the chief of staff, the under secretary, the vice chief of staff and the sergeant major of the Army are all unified and committed to a program to consolidate modernization efforts of the Army in a single command,” Ham tells Government Matters. “Where previously, all the efforts had been different entities within the Army, I think that single focus of the command will serve the Army well going into the future.”
