Victory for America's Army begins with TRADOC


The four TRADOC functions of DESIGN, ACQUIRE, BUILD and IMPROVE are crucial to enable the Army to meet specific Army strategic aimpoints. These aimpoints are defined in the Army Strategic Plan between now and 2050 for the three chief of staff of the Army priorities of Readiness (Current Fight), Future Army (Future Fight) and Take Care of the Troops (Always). These aimpoints describe Army capabilities and conditions for the Current Fight, Next Fight and Future Fight.

TRADOC’s eight Centers of Excellence are based on the Army’s war-fighting functions.
