"The Army has answered the call, and it's the dedication, the determination, and the willingness to sacrifice that the young men and women meet everyday in the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan that has to inspire us. This causes me to want to be part of the effort to make them a better, more effective fighting force. They're unbelievable now, but we need to redouble our efforts to keep that edge, and we must triple our efforts to make their lives more predictable. I'm extraordinarily excited to be a part of TRADOC and to do our best to make that all possible."

"It's not practice that makes perfect; rather, it's perfect practice that makes perfect. It is, after all, the seemingly small disciplines and commitment to high standards that makes us who we are and binds us together as a force, an Army, in peace and in war. That's what we're committed to TRADOC."
