Army leaders from across the force met last week for the Army Profession Forum, hosted by the Secretary of the Army and the Chief of Staff of the Army (CSA) and facilitated by the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic (CAPE).
The objectives of the forum were to introduce the FY 17/18 America's Army - Our Profession "One Army, Indivisible" theme, introduce the Army Character Development Project and the way ahead, and enhance Trust in the Total Army.
During the forum, CSA Gen. Mark Milley talked about the fragility of trust:
"We come from the people and we defend the people. That's our purpose. That's the only reason we exist. And we have to maintain the trust of the American people. Right now you have it. We have it. But trust is a fragile thing. And every time somebody breaks the trust, you're chipping away at the trust, the bond, the cohesion, between the people, and the people's Army."
