Early next year, more than one half of America-s combat forces will be on the move. It-s a massive logistical operation which means that for six months the nation-s readiness to engage in battle will be at its lowest level since the end of the Vietnam War. Defense Secretary Rumsfeld concedes it-s a calculated risk, especially when battle-seasoned veterans get fresh replacements. But the Pentagon says that 130,000 soldiers in Iraq need a break and their equipment needs repair and replacement. Is America-s all-voluntary military stretched too thin? What does it mean for reservists and volunteers? We hear from journalists at the Pentagon and in Germany, a retired Army general at the Institute of Land Warfare and a former Defense Department official.
