It is the largest and oldest established branch of the U.S. military, and is one of seven uniformed services. http://www.blackfive.net/photos/uncategorized/ocpa20060613151514.jpg Slide 3: The U.S. Army, is made up of the best-trained, most dedicated, most respected Soldiers in the world — protecting America’s freedoms at home and abroad, securing the homeland, and defending democracy worldwide. http://regmedia.co.uk/2007/04/19/us_army_land_warrior.jpg History : http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6a/US_Army_Green_Berets_DF-SD-02-02957.JPEG History Slide 5: Congress officially created the United States Army on 3 June 1784 after the end of the American Revolutionary War. On September 29, 1789 the United States Department of War establishes a regular army with a strength of several hundred men. The U.S. Army also fought and won the Mexican–American War. After the September 11 attacks, and as part of the Global War on Terror, U.S. and NATO combined arms (i.e. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Special Operations) forces invaded Afghanistan in 2001, displacing the Taliban government. Slide 6: The primary mission of the Army is to "provide necessary forces and capabilities ... in support of the National Security and Defense Strategies.“ http://www.allamericanpatriots.com/files/images/us-army-paratroopers-in-iraq.jpg Slide 7: The primary mission of the Army is to "provide necessary forces and capabilities ... in support of the National Security and Defense Strategies.“ http://www.allamericanpatriots.com/files/images/us-army-paratroopers-in-iraq.jpg Mission : The United States Army serves as the land-based branch of the U.S. Military. §3062 of Title 10 US Code defines the purpose of the Army as: preserving the peace and security, and providing for the defense, of the United States, the Commonwealths and possessions, and any areas occupied by the United States supporting the national policies implementing the national objectives overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the United States Mission Values : Values In the mid to late 1990s, the Army officially adopted what have come to be known as "The 7 Army Core Values." The Army began to teach these values as basic warrior traits. The seven Army Core Values are as follows: Loyalty – Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit, and fellow Soldiers. Duty – Fulfill your obligations. Respect – Treat others as they should be treated. Selfless Service – Put the welfare of the nation, the Army, and your subordinates before your own. Honor – Live the Army Values. Integrity – Do what's right, both legally and morally. Personal Courage – Face fear, danger, or adversity, both physical and moral. Slide 11: The Army is a key component of the U.S. Armed Forces, providing expeditionary land forces wherever and whenever they are required. Working in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Defense, the Army trains and equips Soldiers and creates leaders among them to rapidly respond when they are called upon to serve the Nation. http://www.blackfive.net/photos/uncategorized/2008/05/05/p20051201b4.jpg Slide 12: The United States Army is made up of three components: the active component the Regular Army and two reserve components, the Army National Guard and the Army Reserve. Because the Army is made of such a large number of Soldiers, it must be organized into units, each with its own leaders and reporting structure. Slide 13: Both reserve components are primarily composed of part-time soldiers who train once a month, known as Battle Assembly or Unit Training Assemblies (UTAs), and conduct two to three weeks of annual training each year. http://images45.fotki.com/v1450/photos/3/345978/1381689/hires_090211F2760L005b-vi.jpg Slide 14: Secretary of the Army : John McHugh Under Secretary : Joseph Westphal Leaders Present Commanders : Present Commanders Sergeant Major: SMA Kenneth O.
