The Army job in 1949 is no small task. As part of the defense team, we mustgive the citizens of the United States a full dollar's worth of security for a dollarspent. At the same time, we are trying to make the Army an interesting, appeal-ing career, open to all. Men and women in the Army are making many personalsacrifices in the work of guarding the frontiers, and deserve the full support of the Nation in this great task.We have pledged ourselves to a speedy, effective unity among the ArmedForces. Within our service, we are striving to build a team of mobile divisionstrained and ready for instant use in case of emergency. And in our plans, we arerelying on the rising strength of the National Guard and Reserve Corps for thebroad base of any future mobilization.In all these plans, we are pledged to a constant observance, in the true demo-cratic tradition, of the right and dignity of the individual.On Army Day, 1949, we of the Army restate these pledges, and invite yourinterest in the progress we are making in the accomplishment of the missionsthe people have assigned to us.
