DCS, G-6 Mission
The DCS, G-6 is the principal military advisor to the Chief of Staff of the Army and the CIO for planning, strategy, network architecture, and implementation of command, control, communications, cyber operations and networks for worldwide Army operations.
U.S. Army Priorities
The 40th Chief of Staff of the Army, Gen. James C. McConville, declared that people are his No. 1 priority. People, in concert with the priorities of readiness, modernization and reform ensure the Army is ready to defeat any adversary, anywhere, whenever called upon, under any condition.
Our Army's people are our greatest strength and our most important weapon system. Our people are our Soldiers, Family members, Department of the Army Civilians, and Soldiers for Life (retirees, and veterans). We must take care of our people and treat each other with dignity and respect. It is our people who will deliver on our readiness, modernization and reform efforts.
Army leaders have a sacred obligation to build cohesive teams that are highly trained, disciplined, and fit that can win on any battlefield. Cohesive teams drive tactical to strategic readiness and enable dynamic force employment. We must be ready to defeat any adversary, anywhere, whenever called upon, under any condition.
The 2018 National Defense Strategy directs the Army to shift focus from irregular warfare to great power competition. We are at a critical inflection point and we must aggressively pursue the Army's modernization efforts in order to maintain our competitive edge. Modernization must include developing the multi-domain operations concept at echelon, delivering the six modernization priorities, and implementing a 21st Century talent management system.
We cannot be an Industrial Age Army in the Information Age. We must transform all linear industrial age processes to be more effective, protect our resources, and make better decisions. We must be the Army of tomorrow, today.
