A campaign plan is a series of major operations and efforts across the joint, interagency and multinational spectrums aimed at achieving strategic and operational objectives in a defined time and space. It provides the framework that directs all current and future operations.
It is it important that United States Army Central implements this new campaign plan. Every organization has to assess itself and decide if the direction it is headed is the direction that should be continued. USARCENT leadership determined it needs to make some adjustments to the direction we are headed and we will accomplish this by implementing a new campaign plan.
USARCENT has successfully transitioned physically from Fort McPherson, Ga. to Shaw Air Force Base, S.C., and must now transition to a new mindset. We must be able to anticipate and adapt to our changing operational environment, which includes the Middle East. It is critical we be prepared to be more than just a logistical headquarters, but a warfighting one as well. We will be the ones U.S Central Command or the Department of the Army calls on to be the Team of Teams to accomplish the complex missions in the Middle East. This new campaign plan helps focus on our new objectives and is and will be an avenue to reach our end state. USARCENT's efforts in the Middle East are key to our diplomacy in the Middle East as USARCENT is a key player in U.S. Foreign policy.
|VISION: United States Army Central - a disciplined and agile command comprised of America's land domain experts in the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia - is postured through enduring presence and persistent partnerships, to protect US national interests in the central region and is capable of rapid transition to command joint and coalition forces to defeat emerging threats.
