Spacer A Commitment to the Future  

The Army, like the American people, remains committed to preserving freedom. As we have for over 226 years, we will continue to win our Nation's wars. Contrary to the expectations of some, the post-Cold War period has not seen a reduction in the demands placed on Soldiers on the ground. In fact, in the years since the fall of the Soviet Union, the international security environment has underscored the importance of ongoing commitments and highlighted new requirements for The Army. These increased demands have intensified the competition for resources and reduced needed investments in people, systems, platforms, and research and development. Unless redressed, risks incurred from this resources shortfall could undermine The Army's ability to satisfy national security requirements. At the same time, the war on terrorism, the requirement to secure the homeland, and the need to maintain readiness for possible near-term contingencies have validated the need for a new kind of Armya capabilities-based ground force that can fight and win battles across the full spectrum of military operations. We are accelerating Army Transformation to achieve these capabilities. The Army cannot predict what other changes the future will bring, but what will not change is the need for our Nation to have the best trained, best led and best equipped Soldiers on the ground, deployed rapidly at precisely the right time, the right place, and with the right support structure as part of a joint military team.
