Soldiers' personal experiences, first-person documentaries, and interactive demonstrations highlight four "zones" comprising "The Army Exhibit" during the 2006 Association of the United States Army (AUSA) Annual Meeting & Exposition, Oct. 9-11, at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center.

"The Army Exhibit" (#1725) explains how the security challenges of the 21st century shape the Army's Vision to provide relevant and ready land power in service to our Nation.

Featuring the theme "Call to Duty -- Boots on the Ground," The Army Exhibit guides visitors through 'zones' that inform audiences of the Army's strategic direction and the nature of Soldiering. In "Boots on the Ground," a 10-minute, first-person documentary describes the service and sacrifice of Soldiers, why they remain the centerpiece of the U.S. Army, and why they are considered the ultimate commitment of the Nation.

"The Army Plan" zone offers compelling speakers, subject matter experts, high-definition media, and interactive demonstrations in a 15-minute presentation that explain the four interrelated strategies that comprise The Army Plan: Provide Relevant and Ready Land Power, Train and Equip Soldiers and Grow Adaptive Leaders, Sustain an All Volunteer Force, and Provide Infrastructure and Support.

"The Warriors Corner" zone is where Soldiers and special guest speakers share their personal experiences. An information and reception area describes each 'zone' and provides an overview of "The Army Exhibit."
