Build Our Team
Our U.S. Southern Command team will be ready for both steady state and crisis operations. Knowledge matters: we must have a trained, educated, and highly competent work force.

Knowledge matters: we must have a trained, educated, and highly competent work force. Our education will include history and culture. Our team must understand the business of warfighting and be equally capable of executing security cooperation with initiative, agility, and transparency to achieve results. We must plan and act with a sense of urgency, and approach every week as though it is our last week of peace.
We must operate from a foundation of trust, unity of effort, and shared understanding. We will embrace innovation, while holding ourselves accountable for results and to being good stewards of taxpayer resources. We commit to continuous improvement of our knowledge, processes, and business practices in order to align our activities with priorities and measure returns on investment.
Being capable and ready includes ensuring our individual and family health and readiness.
