Some Information About Posture

America’s Army continues to answer the Nation’s call, as it has since it was established nearly 235 years ago. Today our Army is fighting two wars, assisting other nations as they build their own security capacity, supporting civil authorities at home, helping the people of Haiti rebuild after a devastating earthquake, and preparing to deter and defeat new threats. The Army’s Soldiers, Civilians, and Families faithfully shoulder the load that our Nation asks of them. With the support of the Congress, we are on track with our four-year plan to put the Army back in balance.

Our Army continues to lead America in the global struggle against violent extremism. Since the attacks of September 11th, 2001, America’s Army has engaged in sustained combat against determined enemies, provided lifesaving humanitarian assistance to those affected by natural disaster abroad, and supported homeland defense and civil authorities in responding to domestic emergencies.
