Army Announces Major Restructuring Plan

February 28, 2024

The Army is cutting its force by 24,000 soldiers – about 5% – it announced Tuesday, as PBS News Hour and other outlets reported. The Army said the plan will make it more capable for future wars.

“These planned reductions are to authorizations (spaces), and not to individual soldiers (faces). The Army is not asking current soldiers to leave,” the Army said in its plan. “As the Army builds back end strength over the next few years, most installations will likely see an increase in the number of soldiers actually stationed there.”
