My career with the military has given me ample opportunity to look at the acquisition products of the military and to critically evaluate them in actual use. After my recent tour in Iraq, working with combat engineers, infantry, tankers, aviators and many other specialties in the Army, I found my concerns with the acquisition system were not unique. My personal military experience has offered me the chance to work with all the other branches and to understand, better than most, the intricate underlying cultures of those organizations. That experience, coupled with my desire to understand systems and work within them, has led me to the study of system dynamics. Though the subject will be explained in greater detail in the thesis, the ability to notice patterns in both military and in nature has revealed many important insights to scientists
and leaders alike. I expect the same to occur during the course of this thesis.
