UNITED STATES ARMY AFRICA:
"Promoting security, stability and peace in Africa"
This book tells the story of the establishment and transformation of U.S. Army Africa from 2008-2010.
UPDATE: This version includes 6 additional pages of news and photos from the 2010 African Land Forces Summit!
On 1 October 2009, U.S. Army Africa, formerly the U.S. Army Southern European Task Force (SETAF) became the Army Service Component Command (ASCC) for U.S. Africa Command (USAFRICOM). That designation reflects some modest, but significant, good news; a year earlier, USAFRICOM had no dedicated Army Service Component Command. Today, U.S. Army Africa embodies the U.S. Army’s commitment to the full spectrum of military operations. The command is well on its way to transforming from a tactical contingency headquarters to a regionally focused theater army headquarters capable of synchronizing all U.S. Army activity in Africa, conducting sustained security engagement with African land forces, and responding promptly and effectively to a variety of crises in Africa.
MISSION: U.S. Army Africa, as the Army Service Component Command for U.S. Africa Command, enables full spectrum operations while conducting sustained security engagement with African land forces to promote security, stability, and peace. As directed, deploys a contingency headquarters in support of crisis response.
VISION: America’s premier Army team dedicated to positive change in Africa.
