TRADOC Pam 600-4Chapter 1General Subjects1-1. Army historya. “Resolved, that a General be appointed to command all thecontinental forces, raised, or to be raised, for the defense of Americanliberty.” The above resolution of the Second Continental Congress on14 June 1775 established the beginnings of the United States (U.S.)Army, as we know it today. The next resolution unanimously selectedGeorge Washington as commanding general of the first ContinentalArmy.b. From Lexington to Trenton to Valley Forge, the Continental Armyproved the critical force in fighting and winning the war for AmericanIndependence (see Declaration of Independence extracts beneathmilitary quotation section). The Army has been the keeper ofAmerican freedom ever since.c. From the outset, civilian control of the military was a governingprinciple of the American system. In 1787, the Constitution placed themilitary under the control of the President. His role as commander-inchief requires every Soldier to follow and obey his orders.d. In 1789, Congress created the Department of War to administer themilitary forces. The Army, now under the direction of the newlycreated cabinet, remained at strength of 60,000 or less from the end ofthe Revolution through the beginning of the Civil War. AlthoughCongress intended that the Regular Army serve only as a supplement tolocal militias, the “regulars” ultimately played the crucial role in boththe War of 1812 and the Mexican War (1846-48).e. In December of 1860, the Army consisted of merely 16,000officers and enlisted men. By 1865, Civil War expansion had increasedthat number to an astounding 1,000,000. Victory for the Union in theCivil War returned the Army to strength of only 25,000 troops.f. An analysis of the Army’s role in the Spanish-American War(1898) revealed deficiencies in the War Department. After becomingSecretary of War in 1899, Elihu Root reorganized and revitalized thedepartment. By the time the Army entered World War I in 1917, it wasat its peak in terms of training and professionalism. Over 2,000,000men followed General John J. Pershing to France as part of theAmerican Expeditionary Force.g. Following victory in the “War to End All Wars,” the Armyremained at strength of approximately 125,000 from 1919 to 1939.However, when Nazi Germany invaded France in 1940, the U.S.Government re-instituted conscription (the draft) and forces balloonedto 1,640,000.h. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941 and during theearly 1940s, 8,300,000 men and women were part of a global effort toclaim victory in World War II. From the Pacific Theater and bloodybattles in the Philippines, to the D-Day invasion of Normandy1
TRADOC Pam 600-4on 6 June 1944, American forces fought with courage to preservefreedom for the world.i. Following the fall of the Nazis and the surrender of the Japanese inAugust 1945, the Army again contracted—this time to strength ofapproximately 500,000. Expansions followed during America’sparticipation in the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Though it reduced insize during the interim periods of peace, the Army remained relativelylarge due to the looming presence of the Cold War.j. When the forces of Communism fell in the late 1980s, civilianleaders began to re-evaluate the Army’s role and it again went througha dramatic reduction in size. In 1991, the Army claimed a majorvictory in Desert Storm, defeating the Iraqi forces, the 4th-largestenemy in the world in 100 hours, and liberating the country of Kuwait.The Army also had a crucial role in bringing peace to many areas ofconflict worldwide, as well as continuing to protect and advanceAmerican interests, throughout the 1990’s.k. The deadly terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001 on the U.S. brought theArmy into a new era of global warfare against terrorism, and thepersons and states, which supported these attacks on our Nation. InAfghanistan, the Taliban reign of terror was overthrown in OperationEnduring Freedom. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Armydefeated the Iraqi forces completely, and ended the regime of SaddamHussein. In these two countries, the Army is continuing efforts torestore stability and establish democracy. No matter how the Armychanges or what the specific mission may be, the Soldier’s role neverchanges: to support and defend the Constitution of the U.S. against allenemies, foreign and domestic.1-2.
