SMA Raymond Chandler Discusses His Priorities for 2014

Recently Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond Chandler spoke with the Army Times in an interview and discussed his priorities for 2014. When asked about his priorities for 2014 and the current fiscal year (FY14) he said:

This year's theme is "Stand Strong," so throughout the year, I will remind soldiers and leaders that being an Army team member challenges us to develop into professionals. Our way ahead is clear -- the Army will be and perform as a profession only when we choose to embody five essential characteristics: trust, military expertise, honorable service, esprit de corps and stewardship.

These must be present in our culture, our team members, our units ... and our commitment to self-police those who do not live up to these standards. When we make the choice to be an Army professional, it cannot be words alone.
