The Army Story

Your understanding of the Army and our missions is an integral part of our nation's security. We want to ensure we provide you with the information and assistance you need to become educated about your Army. Because the Army is an extension of the American public, we encourage you to become active advocates for the Army and our Soldiers by telling the Army story.

There are countless individuals and organizations who have stepped forward to support our Soldiers, Veterans and their Families over the last decade. They are part of the Army Story, too. We now have a "Friends of The Army" blog about issues affecting our Soldiers, Veterans and their Families where we highlight those individuals, organizations and communities who are assisting and providing support to our Army Family. You may read more at our blog.

Community organizations help tell our story as well. Veterans' service organizations (VSOs) and military service organizations (MSOs) have taken on the integral mission of caring for our Soldiers and their Families. Our VSOs and MSOs provide tremendous support and are our advocates before Congress, third-party spokespeople, grassroots influencers to communities, and the nurturing hand standing behind those in uniform every day.

Our Community Relations team works closely with VSOs and MSOs to provide regularly scheduled briefs to their national organizational representatives to learn more about current Army programs and initiatives from Army Senior Leaders.

To find out more about a VSO or MSO providing support in your local community near check out www.ourmilitary.mil or the National Resource Directory www.nationalresourcedirectory.gov.
