During a prolonged time o war, our Army proessionals—our men and womenin uniorm and their civilian counterparts—perormed magnicently well. In theace o continuous deployment to two distant wars, they achieved unprecedentedsuccess. When conducting homeland deense and disaster response, our Army proessionals overcame every challenge with courage, ingenuity, and steadastdetermination. That is why I am exceptionally proud o them and their Families.However, to shape the Army o 2020, we have to understand the Army proessiontoday. Ater a decade o war, we must take stock o our proession, examiningour strengths and weaknesses so that we can prepare our Army or utureuncertainties. Thereore, in October 2010, the Secretary o the Army directedTRADOC to lead an Armywide assessment o the state o the Army proession.This unprecedented holistic review provides us an introspective opportunity orboth Soldiers and civilians to shape the Army o 2020.Following our initial review o our proession, we have updated the
 ARMY:Proession o Arms
pamphlet to refect several revisions, including how we denethe Army proession, essential characteristics, proessional certication, attributes,and competencies. In this update, we explain these revisions so you can beginusing them now or proessional development.The Army proession campaign is as much about dialog and refection as it isabout research and analysis. But most importantly, this campaign is about theactions we will take to improve our proession. Thereore, the end o year reportto senior leaders will ultimately change doctrine, leader development, training,education, evaluation, selection, and promotion. As we move orward , I ask eachand every Soldier and all Army civilians to take ownership o our proession andthink deeply about how you want it to improve our Army. Then, I invite you to jointhe conversation as we build the strongest, most capable, and adaptable orceever imagined. Robert W. ConeGeneral, U.S. Army Commanding GeneralU.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command
