    Ending the Direct Ground Combat Exclusion Rule for Female Soldiers tri-signed letter

  • From the Director of Army Safety - Measuring Up

    Feb 1, 2013

    One of the perennial questions in safety is, "How do we measure what we're doing?" Too often, the only metric we have available is how many Soldiers died in accidents during any particular period. We've gotten into the habit of looking at those numbers and attributing our safety programs' success or failure to them. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; we obviously want the arrow pointing downward on accidental deaths. But, I don't believe it's enough to quantify what we do every day with only a single figure - safety is much bigger and more complex than that.
