Commander's Intent

I will say it as plainly as possible: It is my intent that we will win!

  • Against all adversaries and enemies. Regardless of the form of threat or attack. In gray-zone conflict, hybrid conflict, in competition, and in contribution to strategic deterrence.

  • In all domains. On the ground with allies and partners, with the joint force, in the air, at sea, in space, in cyberspace, in the electromagnetic spectrum, and in the information environment.

  • Through all missions. With clear command and control, detailed and integrated planning, crisp execution, and robust sustainment. Always synchronized to lead or support joint, agency and coalition operations. Always connected to ensure steady information flow.

  • As professionals. A nimble, agile, innovative, and empowered team of Soldiers, civilians and contractors led by engaged leaders. One command—uniquely organized, split-based, geographically postured, regionally aligned, and multi-compo. Educated and trained through multiple professional development opportunities in an environment that prizes dignity and respect above all else. Disciplined, accountable stewards of our Nation’s resources.

  • With all we have. Now and into the future. Integrating our efforts using modernized systems, taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies, and leveraging commercial products. Performing research, development, science, and technology coordinated with DoD and non-DoD organizations. Test, evaluation, and analysis done with a willingness to take risk in order to go fast.

  • With our families. Living a balanced, rewarding, and high quality of life at our homes and on our installations. Safe. Secure. Satisfied.
