  8. 8. The Problem is…<br />The causes of these pressures are not created by those assigned to manage them, the solutions don’t necessarily fit into the stove pipes we have used in the past to plan for and manage installations…<br />8<br />

  15. 15. Army Sustainability<br />“Is not an individual program; rather, it is an organizing paradigm that improves our ability to organize, equip, train and deploy our Soldiers as part of the Joint Force today and into the future. Army Sustainability objectives are to meet current and future mission requirements worldwide, safeguard human health, improve quality of life, and enhance the natural environment.”<br />—2011 Army Posture Statement<br />15<br />15<br />
