    August marks the Army's sixth annual observance of Antiterrorism Awareness Month. The terrorist threats faced today are as complex as they have been at any time in the nation's history. These threats are persistent and constantly evolving as evidenced by the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The Army's antiterrorism program protects personnel, information, and facilities in all locations and situations against terrorist activities. The purpose of Antiterrorism Awareness Month is to instill Army-wide heightened awareness and vigilance to protect Army communities from acts of terrorism.

    At the base of the rappel tower, during Fort Bliss Air Assault School, hundreds of rucksacks are in neat rows. Students sit patiently awaiting instruction. Groups of two go by, always jogging, repeating ‘Air Assault!’ in unison, over and over. This training environment fosters discipline, attention to detail and teaches students air assault operations.

Message from the 22nd Secretary of the Army, Eric Fanning

I am deeply honored to return to America’s Army. Our Army, Active, Guard, and Reserve, is the finest Army the world has ever known. While it is great to be back, the Army is not new to me. Over the course of 25 years, I have seen Army leaders from every seat at the table, including all three military departments, all four services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Capitol Hill, and the White House. Through these interactions and the relationships developed as a result, I have earned an appreciation of the complexity of ground warfare and the challenge of sustaining and advancing a ready Army.
