Soldier of future from 1956

An Army Magazine article from 1956 predicted what the soldier of future would look like. The author, Lt. Col. Robert R. Rigg, prophesized that these advancements – from night vision goggles, to helicopter warfare, to drone strikes – would come after 1974. While he was technically correct, many came later than he foresaw.
