Defense Secretary Ashton Carter has said the commitment of all service members is key to achieve the Force of the Future initiatives to modernize the U.S. military, DoD News reported Friday.

Terri Moon Cronk writes Carter said at the Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois that he welcomes insights from service members to help develop Force of the Future ideas.

Carter also discussed Force of the Future initiatives that address technology investments, force recruitment, personal development, parental leave policies and the participation of women in combat and other military specialties, the report said.

“It doesn’t mean that everybody meets standards, and everybody gets selected, but the principle of the all-volunteer force is we get to pick and choose,” Carter said.
