About the Army’s Army

THE ARMY’S ARMY was established in May 2008 as the world's only volunteer organization of citizens and businesses who've pledged their moral, physical and spiritual support to those in the military. Specifically, we will do everything we can to make soldiers and their families feel welcome, appreciated and safe. We don’t just give lip service to the line “Support the troops,” we live it.

The Army's Army's 1,500 volunteers and 50+ business partners play a vital role in fulfilling our promise of “watching over those who watch over us”

HOW TO RECOGNIZE US

Just look for our emblem and you’ll find someone who’s pledged to watch over those who watch over us.

Partners

The Army's Army partners allow our organization to have an even larger positive impact on the military and their families.
Many of our partners offer special discounts on their products and services to the military and their families. In order to provide convenient access to the discounts, the Army's Army created a blog that houses them, called "Military Discounts."
Army's Army partners have the opportunity to sponsor events and outings for military families. When the TV show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, chose to build a new home for a military family in Fayetteville, The Army's Army and the USO got involved in every aspect of the project.

Members

Three years ago, the Army's Army formed in Fayetteville, NC with three members. Today, we're 1,500 members strong. We were so touched by the lives we affected in the communities surrounding Fort Bragg that the decision was made to make the Army's Army a national organization, helping soldiers and military families across the country.

The following individuals have pledged their support to the Army’s Army. By generously volunteering their time, energy and efforts, they are doing their part to help military families feel welcome and appreciated.

Here are just a few things Army's Army friends and members are saying:

"As a service-member's wife, I was truly touched viewing this [flash mob] video; it brought tears to my eyes to see the gratitude paid to this service member. Thank you, I don't know who came up with the idea but thank you."

"The Army's Army is doing a good thing here. They don't just talk about supporting America's heroes, they actually...organize events like this all over the U.S. to show their appreciation for those who have fought for our freedom. From donating free Christmas Trees to returning soldiers and their families, to the Rolling Thunder Motorcycles who pay tribute to the fallen, and so much more, Janine West and her staff at Army's Army are to be thanked for all the work they do."

"Wonderful. Just amazing that people feel the need to get together and do something like this. Thank you."

"This brought a tear to this old man's eyes...this great community of Fayetteville, N.C. sang ''America'' so beautifully, as an echo of thank you. I would like to thank you for this great video and I am grateful to you and all who went in harms way on my behalf."

"I'm a serving soldier in the British army...this [flash mob video] is a great show of appreciation to your armed forces. Well done."

"We want to thank the Army's Army because they did such a great job. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome."

Fulfilling the Community Covenant


THE ARMY'S ARMY IS A LIVING, BREATHING
example of the Army Community Covenant. Just as the Community Covenant "improves the quality of life for soldiers and their families at their current duty stations and as they transfer to other states," the Army's Army supports soldiers and their families in communities surrounding military installations and serves as a resource for soldiers as they move.

There is a widespread need for an organization like the Army's Army that provides relocation assistance and integrated community support to soldiers and their families in every military community throughout the US. Our goal is to fulfill that need.

Relocation Support

The Army's Army understands the challenges military families face when moving.
For our Fayetteville division, we created FayettevilleWantsYou.com, an online relocation resource with soldiers in mind to make their transition to the area smoother. The interactive website connects relocating families to local Fayetteville residents who are Army's Army members and partners. They are able to speak directly through a Q&A section while learning about important area information, such as healthcare, education, employment and housing options.



We also created a site where soldiers and veterans can reference the latest military discounts.



The Army's Army knows that selecting a new area to call home is a tough decision, which is why we host Relocation Fairs that give new families a chance to visit and become better-acquainted with the community. Fairs include planned activities, such as informative presentations from key community leaders, employment opportunities, tours of area schools and neighborhoods, as well as entertainment.

In addition, the Army's Army Executive Director keeps a blog letting soldiers know about items of interest in their community.
