Jared Serbu: Army retains wartime rapid acquisition teams

The Rapid Equipping Force and the Asymmetric Warfare Group, two organizations the Army created in response to specific challenges in Iraq and Afghanistan, are now a permanent part of the Army. And its leaders say they’re still highly-relevant, even after the withdrawal of large-scale combat troops. Col. Steve Sliwa is the director of the Rapid Equipping Force and Lt. Col. Stephen Lee is the squadron commander for the Asymmetric Warfare Group. They tell DoD reporter Jared Serbu about their enduring missions in a postwar environment.
