Active duty forces have decreased slightly for fiscal year 2022, but long-term force structure is still undetermined.

  • Mark Cancian, senior adviser in the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and former chief of the Force Structure and Investment Division at the Office of Management and Budget, said large cuts to force structure, which he thinks are likely to be in the fiscal 2023 budget coming out in February, would leave some commitments to allies and partners unmet.
  • Cancian said many strategists advocate for advancing technologies and reducing force size in order to confront China, but he said this approach does not work for other parts of the world.
  • One solution is to change the strategy, but Cancian said it is very difficult to scale back commitments to allies.
