   7th Army

The mission of the Department of the Army is to organize, train, and equip active
duty and reserve forces for the preservation of peace, security, and the defense of
our Nation. As part of our national military team, the Army focuses on land
operations; its soldiers must be trained with modern arms and equipment and be
ready to respond quickly. The Army also administers programs aimed at protecting
the environment, improving waterway navigation, flood and beach erosion control,
and water resource development. It provides military assistance to Federal, State, and
local government agencies, including natural disaster relief assistance.
