The Army has been fully engaged over the past year.

Despite the high global operational tempo and our continuing efforts to restore balance and prepare for future contingencies, we have accomplished much in the last year:

  • Manned, trained, equipped, and deployed 15 combat brigades, 34 support brigades, and 369 military and police transition teams in support of Iraq and Afghanistan

  • Invested in the psychological health of the Army by investing more than $500 Million in additional psychological health providers, new facilities, and world-class research

  • Reduced the Army’s ground accidents by 50 percent and the Army’s major aviation accidents by 38 percent in 2008 through leader application of the Army’s Composite Risk Management model

  • Implemented Family Covenants throughout the Army and committed more than $1.5 Billion to Army Family programs and services

  • Improved on-post housing by privatizing more than 80,000 homes, building 17,000 homes, and renovating 13,000 homes since 2000 at 39 different installations through the Residential Communities Initiative

  • Fostered partnerships with allies by training more than 10,000 foreign students in stateside Army schools and by executing more than $14.5 Billion in new foreign military sales to include $6.2 Billion in support of Iraq and Afghanistan
