After more than nine years at war, the Army continues to confront a series of complex, dynamic, and unanticipated challenges to both our national security and the collective security of our allies and partners. These challenges are occurring in many forms and will be waged across the spectrum of conflict--ranging from peaceful competition to general war, and at all points in between, and in all domains land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace. In this uncertain and dynamic environment, the Armys mission endures protect the Nation by providing ground forces to conduct prompt and sustained operations across the spectrum of conflict in support of Combatant Commanders and U.S. Code, Title 10 statutory requirements. To meet this requirement, the Army will prevail in our current and future campaigns, engage to help other nations build their capacity and to assure partners and allies, support civil authorities at home and abroad, and deter and defeat future threats from state and non-state actors. To succeed in this environment, the Army will build balance in the force balance between winning the current war and preparing for the future, balance between conventional and irregular capabilities, and balance between the cultural advantages that have given us security and the cultural changes needed to preserve it. To accomplish this, we need an Army that is a versatile mix of tailorable and networked organizations, operating on a rotational cycle, to provide a sustained flow of trained and ready forces for Full Spectrum Operations FSO and unexpected contingencies--at a tempo that is predictable and sustainable for our All-Volunteer Force. The Army will achieve this by employing Army Force Generation ARFORGEN as our core process which will synchronize all aspects of preparing and sustaining our forces across the Armys Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and Training, Personnel and Facilities DOTMLPF domains.
