Soldiers Are Our Credentials: The Collected Works and Selected Papers of the Thirty-third Chief of Staff, United States Army, contains the "raw material" of history-private papers, outlines, rough drafts, and e-mail correspondence prepared by General Dennis J. Reimer during his tenure as Army chief of staff. His collected works provide a useful and reliable starting point for exploring his thoughts and ideas on the major events and issues that occurred while in office from 1995 to 1999. For this reason, James Jay Carafano has selected those papers with the greatest historical significance and organized them chronologically to reveal both the unfolding events and the recurring themes so central to what Reimer calls strategic communications-being clear, focused, and consistent when communicating to the soldiers in the field, to Congress, and to the American people. This important anthology provides a valuable guide to this historic period. Those who choose to follow the trail will come to grips with one of the most remarkable and eventful chapters in the Army's history.
