Senior Leaders are Saying

Have faith that we are going to get through these troubled times ahead of us. Our nation has troubles, and because the Army is a part of the nation, we have some challenges. We are going to meet those challenges, and we are going to be a better Army in the future than we are today, which is the best Army in the world.

What They're Saying

It's awesome that there's training set up for spouses to come out and see what [Soldiers] go through. I think it's great that we can be a part of the Family that our husbands are in. It just makes a better Army family.

The U.S. Army Exhibit

What is it?

The U.S. Army Exhibit, at Booth #1775, is a must-see, interactive, audio-visual experience featured at the Association of the United States Army's Annual Meeting and Exposition, to be held Oct. 10-12, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. It is the Army's centerpiece military exhibit serving to effectively communicate the mission, vision and values of America's Army.

The theme continues: America's Army: The Strength of the Nation.

What has the Army done?

Throughout the three-day meeting, the exhibit's presenters and media products will focus on telling visitors why the Army is the 'Strength of the Nation' educate the Army community through interactive presentations and inspire participants through videos highlighting the many contributions of Soldiers and other pillars of strength who support the Army.

The Army Exhibit is broken down into three sections: Warriors Corner, Marquee Theater and Interactive Display. Warriors Corner provides a prominent forum for 17 live presentations that focus on current operations and Army initiatives, each followed by question-and-answer sessions. In the Marquee Theater, two videos will air continuously. The first video is 'The Squad' and the second video is entitled 'The Army Profession.' The interactive area features a presentation highlighting the Army's transition in the crucible of war for the past 10 years as it evolved to meet both current needs and future requirements. Employing moderators using advanced gesture-driven and touch screen technology, the audience participates in this informative presentation, at interactive pods. Further, there will be a demonstration on how the Army is using cutting-edge interactive concepts from the Institute for Creative Technologies, to address various training and leader development requirements.

Why is this important to the Army?

The U.S. Army Exhibit seeks to provide content that communicates key Army messages based on our strategic communication priorities, including: Modernization, Health of the Force, Leader Development, Efficiencies, Medical Innovations, Transforming the Institutional Army, and Army Force Generation.

What is planned for the future?

The U.S. Army will continue to leverage opportunities to engage audiences to tell the Army story. After Oct . 1, Army advocates are encouraged to visit The U.S. Army's official website for additional resources on the Army's participation at the AUSA.


A U.S. Army Exhibit mobile application will be available Oct. 1st, in two formats: Apple iOS X compatible with iPhone 3GS and 4 and iPad 1 and 2 and Blackberry and Android compatible App written in HTML 5. Visit U.S. Army- Mobile for instructions
