WASHINGTON, Jan. 13, 2012 -- Under Secretary of the Army Dr. Joseph W. Westphal visited the U.S. Army Cyber Command Headquarters at Fort Belvoir, Va., Jan. 10, to gain situational awareness and ensure the Army is correctly prioritizing, balancing and integrating resources to support the mission of this newly-established and mission-critical organization.

Westphal met with Lt. Gen. Rhett Hernandez, commander of U.S. Army Cyber Command and 2nd Army. During the visit, he received various updates about the command's wide-ranging responsibility for the global defense of all Army networks.

"I am very impressed with this talented team of elite warriors," Westphal said. "Our Army benefits 24-7 from the incredible capabilities this command employs, and the cutting edge technology used to defend the Army's network and maintain dominance in cyberspace."

Westphal also participated in an awards ceremony and recognized several employees assigned to the command.

"This is a true team of professionals. I appreciate your expertise and commitment to the unprecedented mission that this command performs within cyberspace," Westphal expressed to U.S. Army Cyber Command's workforce. "The work that you do contributes to the success of every mission that the Army conducts around the world."

Army Cyber Command was activated Oct.1, 2010, and is comprised of 21,000 Soldiers and civilian employees at locations around the globe. U.S. Army Cyber Command is the Army's service component command to U.S. Cyber Command, a sub-unified command under U.S. Strategic Command.

U.S. Army Cyber Command's mission is to plan, coordinate, integrate, synchronize, direct, and conduct network operations and defense of all Army networks. When directed, Army Cyber Command will conduct cyberspace operations in support of full spectrum operations to ensure U.S. and allied freedom of action in cyberspace, and to deny the same to adversaries.
