FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — The Army's top officer said Friday it will take three to four years to put the Army back in balance after seven years of war.
"Right now, the Army is out of balance. We're stretched and stretched by the fact that we didn't have a big enough Army to do the things the nation is asking us to do since Sept. 11," said Gen. George Casey, the Army's chief of staff. "Once you are off track it takes a long time to put it back together."
