FM 25-101, Battle Focused Training,
manual, opens with the following passage:
"The Army exists to deter war or, if deterrence fails, to win in
combat. For deterrence to be effective, our enemies must know that our Army
can mobilize, deploy, fight and sustain combat operations.
training molds human resources into cohesive, combat ready units.
To be successful in combat, the Army must train continually to
develop and maintain combat ready soldiers, leaders, and units that can
perform assigned tasks to specific standards. The requirement for training
continues even during wartime (especially within the combat zone). Training
builds self-confidence, promotes teamwork and esprit de corps, and increases
professionalism in soldiers, leaders, and units."
