CASHLESS ARMY, ARMY AFTER NEXT, STRATEGY RESEARCH PROJECT
Some individuals believe the dollar bill will soon be a memory. Indeed smart cards (sometimes called stored value cards), debit cards,
Echeck, and digital money are replacing cash. The future most likely will include other unforeseen ways of conducting fiscal affairs. This paper
discusses each of these concepts and how the U.S. Army uses currency today-in most Special Forces activities, as well as tactical, peacekeeping and
day-to-day operations. This paper argues that while future technologies may replace the use of some currency in the United States it will not replace
the use of all currency. The Army After Next (AAN), the Army of 2010-2025, will continue to require currency to support most Special Forces, tactical,
and peacekeeping operations. Most likely the AAN will not need currency in day-to-day operations.
