PENTAGON - The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment (ASA (IE&E)), the Hon. Katherine Hammack, has released the 'Army Installations 2025' strategy.

'Army Installations 2025' presents the Army's strategy to ensure our installations remain ready, resilient, and capable of meeting the demands placed upon them. It represents a foundation to assess Army investments in Army installations. As the Army's perspective changes to view the critical role of land, facilities, and infrastructure as mission enablers, Army Installations 2025 will guide and shape current and future program actions at all levels within the Army.

'Army Installations 2025' provides an implementing framework in support of the larger 'ASA (IE&E)'s Installations, Energy and Environment Strategy 2025'.

This guidance applies to every Army installation and serves to guide and direct activities and investments at a local level.

This strategy is the foundation and vision to support the Army as it transitions, adapts, and improves to meet the demands of the future.

"'The Installations, Energy and Environment Strategy 2025' is our holistic strategy which focuses on three key business drivers -- Installations - Energy - and Environment," Hon. Hammack said.

"'Army Installations 2025' describes the first key business driver (Installations) in more detail. Specifically, enhancing Installation resiliency, prioritizing facility investments, optimizing infrastructure, setting conditions for a future base realignment and closures, building the National Museum of the United States Army and Contingency basing capabilities."

Hon. Hammack adds that 'Army Installations 2025' joins the 'Energy Security and Sustainability (ES2)' strategy which describes the second key business driver in more detail and the 'Environment Strategy 2025,' which will describe the third key business driver.

She adds, in order to fight and win our nation's wars, we must ensure the Army remains ready as the world's premier combat force. Our collective strength depends on how we take care of our Soldiers, Civilians, and Families. Without question, these are our most important resources.
