ABSTRACT
The article discusses the shortage of U.S. ground troops for deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan. It notes that Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense, visited Fort Drum, New York to meet with soldiers and listen to their concerns. It also cites that the lack of legislative bills, the zero-budget, and the difficulty to produce skilled soldiers made such shortage of American troops more difficult.
