ACHIEVING A VISION
Army entering ‘renaissance’ period of opportunity, says Esper
The U.S. Army is the greatest fighting forces the world has ever known, but to maintain that excellence and overmatch will “require hard work and a disciplined focus on our priorities,” said Secretary of the Army Mark T. Esper.
“It will require a renewal, a renaissance in how we envision, plan and prepare for future conflict,” he continued.
Esper delivered the keynote address at the opening ceremony of the Association of the United States Army’s Annual Meeting and Exposition, Oct. 8. He then touched on various ways the Army is seizing the initiative to improve readiness and modernization.
