    largely a matter of theory. Post WW I, twenty years of inadequate funding and bare bone units had made the U.S. Army little more than a token establishment. On 1 September 1939, the day that Germany's attack on Poland signaled the beginning of World War II, the U.S. Army ranked approximately seventeenth in effectiveness among the armies of the world, just behind that of Romania. The Regular Army totaled less than 190,000 personnel. Of 174,000 enlisted men, 45,300 were stationed overseas. The…

    in the United States Army. I’ve been in the active service for less than a year at that point and I was already outshining my peers.

These type of notions are alien to the United States Army which in my opinion runs as an institution. Some institutions like the United States Army seldom listen to new and challenging ideas. However, if all Counterintelligence (CI) Agents do not challenge the status quo, we as CI professionals will never become innovative and will adhere…
