In the past, the Army's programs concentrated on the quality of life of our people - defined as a standard of living to which individuals, communities, and nations strive to meet or exceed. Army Well-Being organizes and integrates these quality of life initiatives and programs into a Well-Being "framework. This framework provides a way to measure success in the Army’s people programs and to address emerging needs of our transforming Army.

These goals address the primary and basic needs of each member of the Total Army Family – To Serve, To Live, To Connect and To Grow .

To Connect is to develop and maintain a sense of pride and belonging within the Army Team – Soldiers, DA Civilians, Retirees, Veterans and Families. To Grow is to take advantage of the numerous opportunities the Army provides for personal and professional growth. The objective of Army Well-Being is to address the physical, material, mental and spiritual needs of each member of the Total Army Family so they have the opportunity to achieve each of these goals to the degree they desire, enhancing their preparedness to perform and support the Army’s mission.
