Programs and Capabilities

Army culture is grounded in our values of loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage. These values are time-tested and provide our culture with a rock-solid foundation. Drawing upon our positive and powerful Army values, we will create a people-focused culture that destroys harmful behaviors and builds cohesive teams across our formations.
