For the Army of 2020, FORSCOM provides enhanced land power gaining operational depth and versatility through a mix of fully integrated Active and Reserve Component forces operating with our Unified Action Partners.

Commanding General

"Over the past thirteen years, this command - United States Army Forces Command -- prepared the vast majority of combat forces sent to Iraq, Afghanistan and many other places our nation needed ground forces of tough, hardened, resolute professionals. To deter an enemy, to assure an ally, and to win a war requires well trained, constantly ready, superbly led, lethal and adaptive ground forces -- and it is our job in FORSCOM, as it has always been, to train, mobilize and provide those forces when the nation calls. And, as we have seen all too often, the nation will call and when it does our task is to be ready for any mission, anywhere, anytime. That is our mission -- readiness and we will not fail."
