REDSTONE ARSENAL, Ala. - Energy is key to everything the Army does: it keeps the lights on, water running and vehicles moving.

Each October, the Army observes Energy Action Month to remind Soldiers, civilians and families that energy is a mission enabler and a force multiplier for a ready and resilient Army. This year's theme, "Energy Resilience Enables Army Readiness," highlights the importance of achieving energy security and resilience throughout the Army.
