Army Chief of Staff Gen.
Ray Odierno acknowledged the Air Force had “no choice” but to reduce the number
of remotely piloted aircraft combat air patrols in order to normalize its

driving very hard tradeoffs across the services.
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno told reporters Thursday
he is “pleased with the conversation” the Army and Air Force are having on the
