Human capital is the Battalion’s greatest resource. Mission success is based on
building a robust civilian-military team of professionals and families. Safety,
discipline, training, and morale are the key pillars in building the team. These
four pillars are interdependent, that is, it takes focus and effort by every member
of this Battalion in all these areas to build a strong, cohesive team. We build
our team to accomplish the mission. We must be customer service and Warfighter focused
in all that we do. To accomplish this mission, we must operationalize the network.
We must provide and project the capabilities and capacity that the Warfighter and
the generating force need. At the same time, we also have to work within the policies
that safeguard our networks and the fiscal reality that we face in the out years.
In other words, we never say ‘no’ – we say ‘this is what it will take to say yes’.
This is our challenge and our mission. Build the team, sustain a positive command
environment, and fight the network!
We must never forget that all of us, both Soldier and Civilian, have volunteered
to serve our Nation and the Department of the Army. This is a profession, not a
job. We have a duty to serve our Nation every minute of every day. I expect every
member of our team to live up to our values: Duty, Integrity, Honor, Personal Courage,
Selfless Service, Respect, and Loyalty. There is no place in our Army for sexual
harassment and assault, hazing, spouse and child abuse, toxic leadership, and lying.
I will not tolerate blue-on-blue crimes. We must encourage those that need help
to seek help; we all need to take a knee from time to time so that we can stay in
the fight. There is no stigma in asking for help but there is for not asking for
help when you need it! This is what we mean by treating people with dignity and
respect. Understand where our Army is heading; read the CSA’s ‘Marching Orders’
and know the ‘Gold Book’. I expect leaders at all levels to contribute and carry
out their leadership roles and responsibilities.
Always be passionate about what we do, but don’t let emotions rule your decisions!
