Dear AAAA Members:

Our office will be closed on Monday, November 11 in observance of Veterans Day.

Each year on the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended major hostilities in World War I, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, we pause to reflect on the honorable service of all U.S. military veterans who have served or are currently serving. Originally called Armistice Day to recognize those who fought in "The Great War," it was renamed Veterans Day in 1954 to include all who had ever served and are currently serving.

On this Veterans Day, we salute you who have served and who continue to serve our great country.

Above the Best!

MG Jeff Schloesser, U.S. Army, Retired
34th President, AAAA

It’s Time to Get After It!

Army Aviation is moving out to achieve a lethal, decisive and sustainable Multi-Domain Operations maneuver and fires capability by 2028.

Branch Chief, MG Dave Francis explains how the Branch and Aviation Enterprise is going to achieve this goal across the Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leader Development, Personnel, Facilities and Policy structure for both the current force as well as the future force. His focus on leader development and education is critical: as MG Francis points out, the new soldiers, be they enlisted or officer, joining our formations today will be the leaders of our Future Force tomorrow, and we must get their development RIGHT.

Our Program Executive Officer for Aviation, MG Thomas Todd, speaks in his article to how his team of teams work within the broader Enterprise on “providing our Soldiers unmatched capabilities required in the current environment” while “setting the conditions to ensure the CABs’ (combat aviation brigades) future success through continuous innovation to support large scale ground combat operations.”   Read More
