New Cumberland July 21:The Department of the Army has announced intentions to conduct antiterrorism training, education and awareness throughout the month of August 2011. During this month, Army installations, facilities and forces will focus their efforts to heighten awareness and vigilance to prevent and protect Army communities from acts of terrorism.
The Army recognizes that installations, facilities and operational units must be capable of deterring and defending against the full range of threats – including terrorist attack. By integrating antiterrorism doctrinal principles with constant antiterrorism awareness the Army ensures the safety and security of its people (Soldiers, DA civilians, and family members) while ensuring mission success.
The Army’s antiterrorism plans and programs provide the defensive element in a broader combating terrorism program. Effective antiterrorism measures integrate a multitude of security programs which ensure the protection of our people, information, infrastructure, installations, facilities, and forces.
As such, antiterrorism training, education and awareness support the entire Army community and is a critical part of our overall protection.
