FORSCOM Campaign Plan 2011-2015
SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING
"We want to ensure that the family programs we're operating are run well and efficiently and if we need to make adjustments so they can be more so, that's fine. But what we won't do particularly as a first reaction, is look to those programs as a source of budgetary savings."
- Secretary of the Army John McHugh, at an opening presentation at the 2010 Association of the United States Army's Annual Meeting and Exposition in Washington, D.C., promised to leave family support programs intact when looking for ways to lean out the service's massive budget.

FORSCOM Campaign Plan 2011-2015
What is it?
The FORSCOM Campaign Plan (FCP) 2011-2015 describes Gen. James D. Thurman's vision as commanding general, U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), to ready forces for a dynamic and complex operating environment as well as FORSCOM's plan to achieve that vision. It is synchronous with the Army Campaign Plan, focusing on FORSCOM's output -- trained and ready forces capable of executing full spectrum operations anywhere in the world. It uses four lines of effort -- Sustain, Prepare, RESET and Transform -- and includes the campaign objectives, major tasks, and metrics through which FORSCOM will track and measure progress. The FCP is applicable to all FORSCOM subordinate commands and designed to inform commands and agencies that support FORSCOM and ARFORGEN.
What has the Army done?
During nine years of war, and in response to the complex threats America faces, our Army has transformed from a division-centric to a brigade-centric, modular force and made unprecedented changes in terms of its leadership doctrine, command and control relationships, and the way it generates forces. Today the Army's total force is progressively readied and cyclically deployed to simultaneously execute offense, defense, and stability and support operations in support of validated requirements worldwide.
What is FORSCOM's plan to support future Army requirements?
The complex and uncertain global security landscape will require Army to generate land forces capable of full spectrum operations over the next five years. To meet anticipated requirements as well as restore operational depth and strategic flexibility, the Army is establishing ARFORGEN as a supply-based model. This model requires FORSCOM -- in partnership with the Army National Guard (ARNG) and the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) -- to cyclically provide force packages consisting of full spectrum operations capable active and reserve component forces as well as maintain a surge force capability. The FCP is the plan through which these near- to mid-term Army force generation requirements as well other challenges and opportunities facing FORSCOM will be accomplished.
Why is this important to the Army?
The FCP 2011-2015 is the plan through which FORSCOM - in partnership with the ARNG and USAR -- will continue to meet the demands for land forces by a Nation at war. It demonstrates FORSCOM's commitment to the continuous improvement of the Army Force Generation (ARFORGEN) process as well as Army's imperatives to preserve the all-volunteer force.
