Association of the U.S. Army (AUSA) Sustaining Members’ Reception and Lunch

As Delivered by Gen. Martin Dempsey, Washington, D.C. Wednesday, October 12, 2011 [excerpt]

          “Put up the next slide for me, will you? Some of you have seen this before. I’ve used it. I like to carry images around with me. You know that. And this is an image that some of you have seen, but I’ll go through it briefly for those of you that haven’t.
            That’s a squad leader. He happens to be in Afghanistan. I’ve subtitled it trust. You could pick any number of subtitles. Any one of the Army values, actually, would fit very well underneath there, but let’s say trust for just the second — trust because you’ve got the wingman guarding his flank. The wingman’s not worried because you notice his squad leader has got his back. The squad leader, you can tell by his eyes, he’s going through that kind of conflicting emotions of courage and fear, confidence and uncertainty.
            He is on the radio asking for something. And to highlight that point, that squad leader knows that when he asked — he needs something right now. I don’t know if it’s a MEDEVAC or close air support or guidance or any other number of capabilities that he needs. And here’s what sets us apart: He knows he’s going to get it. He knows that in this country, when we send our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines to war, if they need something, they’re going to get it.
            And as we go forward into the — into the next decade and whatever challenges might accrue, that’s the sacred bond of trust that we cannot afford to break. And as — and I say “afford” because it will come down to the resources the nation will commit to supplying to its men and women in uniform when they place them in harm’s way.”
