SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

About Stand-To!

- "The best thing the Army Staff has done to keep Commanders in the field informed in many years."

- "Stand-To! is one of the best strategic communications tools the Army has ever put on the street. ...I am up to speed on general current information, plus conversant in the most relevant issues facing the Army."

- "Great new tool for leaders!"

- "It is widely read and highly sought after."

- "A masterful job of capturing the hot issues in town and around the Army."

- "I do like the initiative ... to "push" info to us in "Stand To". It sure is more user friendly [to] not have to go pull what are the hot button tidbits each day. Almost like a digital Early Bird being delivered each morning. Hooah."
