Total Army Strong

In 2014, the Total Army Strong campaign was approved to mark the evolution of the fully executed Army Family Covenant.

Total Army Strong

The Army Family Covenant was limited in application because of its connection to specific programs. Total Army Strong provides a broader, tailorable platform from which commanders can deliver essential programs to support a ready and resilient Army.

Total Army Strong gives commanders flexibility to prioritize and adjust programs and services regardless of geographic location. Further, it underscores our commitment and responsibility to our Total Army Family- Soldiers, families and civilian employees.

As the nation and Army prepare for the future, we must anticipate the evolving needs of Soldiers and Families. We will find a new balance to support our premier all-volunteer Army through responsible stewardship, program assessment and the promotion of self reliance.

Decisions to adjust programs will be made strategically, but executed locally, and will ensure a balance of services to promote long-term Soldier and family readiness.

We will continue to refine programs to ensure they efficiently serve the most critical needs of our Soldiers, families and communities. We will keep our force healthy, ready and self reliant.

  • Army Family Covenant
  • Helping Soldiers & Families

"Never before in the history of our Army have we asked so much of our families. They are serving side-by-side with our Soldiers, enduring their hardships and providing the unconditional love and support that truly make our Army strong. The Army Family Covenant pledges our commitment to support Soldiers and their families and resource programs to provide them a quality of life commensurate with their service."

On Oct. 8, 2007, the Army unveiled the Army Family Covenant, which institutionalizes the Army’s commitment to provide Soldiers and families — active, Guard, and Reserve — a quality of life commensurate with their level of service and sacrifice to the Nation. It commits the Army to improve family readiness by:

The Army Family Covenant commitment is enduring. The Army has made significant progress in improving family programs, health care, housing, child and youth services, recreation, education and employment opportunities, but there is still work to be done to build an environment where Army families can prosper and realize their full potential.

The Army Family Covenant for the Army in Hawaii was resigned Oct. 20, 2011. Unit leaders from throughout the island participated, including U.S. Army Pacific, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, 25th Infantry Division, 9th Mission Support Command, 196th Infantry Brigade, 94th Army Air and Missile Defense Command, Tripler Army Medical Center, 311th Signal Command and 500th Military Intelligence Brigade.
