In recent years, the US Army's concern for the environment has increased. The Army Chief of Staff, General Dennis Reimer, has stated, "Environmental responsibility involves all of us. The environmental ethic must be part of how we live and how we train. We must seize the opportunities to do things smarter and better. By working together, we can forge a premiere environmental stewardship program. Protection of the environment is the key to ensuring we can continue to conduct tough, realistic training and keep the Army trained and ready in the future." Army leaders within most military structures are placed in positions to develop, approve, and implement courses of action that determine the squad's, platoon's, company's, battalion's, or brigade's environmental status. Their visibility also places their personal and professional actions under close public scrutiny. Their actions create public perceptions of how well the Army is performing its environmental stewardship mission. All leaders, therefore, have an inherent and professional responsibility to understand and support the Army's environmental program. This subcourse will assist leaders in meeting this responsibility.
