Military installations and civilian communities are inseparably linked. Most of our members and their families live, shop, work, play, and go to school in their surrounding town or county. In fact, we now depend on our surrounding communities to teach our children, protect our loved ones, and provide infrastructure so Soldiers may fulfill their duties on the post. We seek partnerships for the benefit of all citizens.
The DCS, G-9 is leading the way for Army in encouraging regular Army and reserve components installations to meet with municipalities and states to further engage in a mutually beneficial partnering process. This process includes remaining open to potential Inter Governmental Support Agreements and partnership opportunities with the private sector.
Army partnerships are a vital tool for accomplishing key Army goals. Partnerships encourage innovation and collaboration between partners, which drives modernization throughout the Army. Additionally, partnerships identify cost efficiencies, reduce installation service response times, and improve communications, which contribute to Army readiness, modernization and reform.
