2007 Army Posture Statement- Provide Infrastructure and Support to Enable the Force to Fulfill Its Strategic Roles and Missions

Thursday February 22, 2007

To better enable the force to fulfill its strategic roles and missions, we are:

- Adjusting our global footprint to be better positioned for the challenges of the 21st Century and the long war on terror.

- Transforming our installations, depots, and arsenals - and the information network that connects them - to become more efficient and better able to support the Army's mission, at home and abroad.

- Challenging the way we conduct the business of the Army - constantly finding ways to improve, to increase productivity, and to maximize the use of every dollar.

- Transforming the Army's structure, systems, processes, and logistics automation to enable Soldiers to sustain the full range of our global commitments.

SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

"Army medical care is the best in the world. Each day, selfless and dedicated doctors, nurses and support staff perform miracles to save lives and limbs and provide the best possible care for our Wounded Warriors. What has been discovered at Walter Reed in dealing with outpatient care must not overshadow the incredible work of our medical professionals." - Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Richard Cody, Feb. 20, following a visit to the outpatient section of Walter Reed Army Medical Center with Army Secretary Francis J. Harvey.
