The 2003 United States Army Posture Statement

PEOPLE – OUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE

101st Airborne Division, Afghanistan

The Army Vision begins and ends talking about people. People are central to everything else we do in The Army. Platforms and organizations do not defend this Nation; people do. Units do not train, stay ready, grow and develop leadership – they do not sacrifice and take risks on behalf of the Nation. People do. Institutions do not transform; people do. People remain the engine behind all of our magnificent moments as an Army, and the well-being of our people – the human dimension of our Transformation – is inextricably linked to Army readiness.

In our Vision, we recommitted ourselves to doing two things well each and every day – training Soldiers and civilians and growing them into competent, confident, disciplined, and adaptive leaders who succeed in situations of great uncertainty. We are dedicated to preparing our Soldiers to lead joint formations, to enabling our headquarters to command and control joint forces, and to providing to those joint formations the capabilities only The Army can bring to the fight: the ability to control terrain and populations.
