One Army, Indivisible

One Army, Indivisible Theme Image

"One Army, Indivisible" is the America's Army - Our Profession (AAOP) biennial theme for fiscal year 2017-2018. Our Total Army is comprised of three interdependent, mutually supporting components: the regular Army, the Army National Guard, and the Army Reserve, plus the Army Civilian Corps that supports all three. The Army's fundamental mission to win in the unforgiving crucible of ground combat requires the combined effort of the entire team to be ready today and prepared for tomorrow.

"One Army, Indivisible" is an important concept because each element of the team makes an essential contribution to the Total Army's ability to provide for the ethical design, generation, support and application of landpower.

Soldiers and Army Civilians serving in all components share an identity as trusted Army professionals, who are inspired to honorably fulfill their oaths of service to the nation. Having an understanding of the communities of practice, components and cohorts within the Total Army is an essential first step to appreciate the vital role each plays in accomplishing the Army's mission.
