U.S. Army Reserve

 

LTG Charles D. Luckey“When I talk about having to Fight Fast, when I talk about capability and combat-readiness, I’m talking about lethality for America’s Army Reserve.”

“I want to be sure we’re all clear on this; we are going to get this [Ready Force X] done. This is about leadership in the third component in the United States Army. We are going to generate for the American people what they expect us to generate. If you think you've got months or years to get ready in a very time-tested lethal environment, you're in the wrong ball club.”
