The writing theme for 2023 is “Implementing FM 3-0, Operations”
The updated Field Manual (FM) 3-0, Operations, was introduced and disseminated throughout the Army during October 2022. The intent of this year’s DePuy competition is to encourage close examination of the impact implementing FM 3-0 will have on the Army. A list of suggested topics for examination is noted within the PDF provided below. However, the list is not exclusive and treatment of other relevant topics is encouraged. Manuscripts identifying and analyzing other salient topics that offer insight and productive critique of issues related to implementation of FM 3-0 are encouraged.
