Bill DePuy's career oscillated between experience of overseas fieldwork assignments and high-level staff work in Washington. After focusing for three years on hand-on training in Germany, DePuy returned to Washington to work with those at the top of the army hierarchy. DePuy was regarded as a “thinker and doer” as he was capable of both dealing with complex military concepts as well as leading soldiers. DePuy participated in the formulation of military strategy as he joined the Office of the Chief of Staff, Army's (OCSA) Coordination Group. DePuy was one of those who participated in strategic debates that initiated during the Korean War's last year and furthered on until the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations.
