In the past decade, America's Army has been challenged and prevailed in some of the most daunting tasks in the history of our military. Soldiers from the Active Army, Army National Guard and Army Reserve demonstrate indelible spirit, sacrifice and sheer determination in protecting our national interests and supporting our friends and allies around the world. In the coming years, our top priorities will be to maintain our combat edge while we reconstitute the force for other missions and build resilience in our people. Finally, the Army has made significant progress in restoring balance through the four imperatives we identified in 2007- sustain, prepare, reset, and transform.
The information provided in the addendum to The Army Posture Statement satisfies information required by the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1994. The information is presented in the order and depth as required by the Act. Section 517 states: "The Secretary of the Army shall include in the annual report of the Secretary to Congress known as the Army Posture Statement a presentation relating to the implementation of the Pilot Program for Active Component Support of the Reserves under section 414 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Years 1992 and 1993."
