Currently, reorganization of the Army under the Unit of Action/Unit of Employment (UA/UE) concept has focused exclusively on the mechanics of conversion. This thesis argues that the process must begin with an appreciation of the Army's identity as a strategic force for the nation? This thesis argues that reorganization of the Army under the UA/UE concept is consistent with the Army's identity, provided an end state is articulated, which is currently lacking. That end state must be a holistic force structure; one that is based on identity, t on threats or capabilities. This thesis fills the existing void by providing a force structure that truly reflects the Army's identity. As a foundation for this force structure, this thesis examines the Army's identity as a strategic force, the current Army organization, the UA/UE force structure, and the underlying concepts driving and supporting the UA/UE conversion. The resulting force structure is then tested against four criteria: doctrine, organization, training, and leadership. Two elements are teworthy. First, this force design rejects the concept of modularity in favor of a more tailored approach. Secondly, the operational effectiveness of this force structure is further increased by the development and institutionalization of a force stabilization system. This thesis demonstrates how a force stabilization system is integrated into a force structure.
