Associated Press has a new feather in its cap. Four Star Army Gen. John N. Abrams has agreed to sign on as a military adviser for the news organization. Both AP Radio Networks and AP Television will use his analysis during the war with Iraq.
Gen. Abrams commanded the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command and is credited as one of the primary architects of the “Army of the 21st Century.” His military career began in 1966 as a tank crewman. Abrams led Armored Cavalry Units in combat during the Vietnam War, commanded the Eleventh Armored Cavalry Regiment on the border of East and West Germany during the fall of the Iron Curtain and commanded Joint Task Force Kuwait following Desert Shield and Storm. He also commanded the Second Infantry Division along the Korean DMZ and the Fifth Corps in the Balkans.
