Strength goes beyond how many pounds you can bench press. It’s a measure of personal courage, selfless service an
overcoming adversity. Faces of Strength aims to define strength in these ways – ways that inspire others to find their own strength, reach their own goals and share their own stories, thus connecting Americans with their Army.
Strength is not an end in and of itself but a means to achieve more, and we’re proud to use our voice to acknowledge the strength that so many Americans show in support of the Army Community. These Soldiers, Families and community members make us Army Strong.
The Faces of Strength are the faces of America’s Army. They are the fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers and sons and daughters that make up the Army Community. From the rural heartland to cities around the country, these individuals, both young and old, have shown their commitment to the United States Army in extraordinary ways. Although they are not alone in their efforts, they are certainly unique.
We’ll soon be featuring eight new stories for 2011 on a redesigned website that will encourage you to share your own stories of strength. Check us out at http://www.army.mil/facesofstrength, and find us on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr for extra features and updates.
