Transcript of Army

The U.S Army The United States Army (USA) is the main branch of the United States Armed Forces responsible for land-based military operations. Department of the Army Emblem The Department of the Army Seal and the Department of the Army Emblem are, respectively, the official seal and emblem of the Department of the Army (formerly, of the War Department). The "War Office Seal" was created in 1778 and the Emblem was developed out of the seal and approved in 1974. Mission The United States Army serves as the land-based branch of the U.S. military. §3062 of Title 10 US Code defines the purpose of the army as:

*preserving the peace and security and providing for the defense of the United States, the Commonwealths and possessions and any areas occupied by the United States.
*supporting the national policies.
*implementing the national objectives.
*overcoming any nations responsible for aggressive acts that imperil the peace and security of the United States. Military Training -Basic Training-

Basic Training- Often called boot camp – prepares recruits for all elements of service: physical, mental and emotional. It gives service members the basic tools necessary to perform the roles that will be asked of them for the duration of their tour. Each of the Services has its own training program, tailoring the curriculum to the specialized nature of its role in the Military.

No matter which branch of the Service a recruit chooses, Basic Training is an intense experience. However, about 90 percent of recruits make it through boot camp. The purpose of this training isn’t to “break” recruits. In fact, the combination of physical training, field exercises and classroom time makes individuals strong and capable. It’s a tough process, but a rewarding one that many service members value for life. ADVANCED INDIVIDUAL TRAINING
