ABSTRACT
The author describes the U.S. Army's Warfighter Information Network-Tactical (WIN-T) program as the centerpiece of all-volunteer force for the global war on terrorism in 2008. He stresses that having the information technology capability is not enough and that the advanced capabilities that WIN-T brings will only be useful with properly trained and motivated leaders and soldiers at every level. He urges that new equipment training be given top priority for the chain of command to enforce.
