The mission of the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence and Fort Rucker's website is to communicate with both internal and external audiences. The website informs its visitors of the USAACE and Fort Rucker commanding general's goals, priorities and intent, as keeping his command informed is one of the commander's responsibilities.
Additionally, since the website is "owned" by the public, we strive to help the public understand how USAACE and Fort Rucker support the Army and the nation. The public is our "customer" and the ones who create for our organization its purpose and focus. Therefore, public support of USAACE and Fort Rucker is important to us.
If you have any questions or comments about the information presented here, please forward them to the website content manager.
All content, including links, appearing on the www.rucker.army.mil domain is evaluated for fairness and acceptability as being in the best interest of the public. This website's content will not exhibit hate, bias or discrimination. Furthermore, this website's content will not contain misleading information or unsubstantiated claims, or be in conflict with USAACE or Fort Rucker mission or policies.
All content goes through a review process prior to posting to ensure compliance with DoD web policy, AR 25-1, AR 25-2, AR 530-1, AR 360-1 and other applicable DoD, Army, TRADOC and local policy and guidance regarding web content. Fort Rucker Public Affairs serves as overall web content manager.
In the event of a contingency (i.e. adverse weather, pandemic influenza or terrorist attack), USAACE and Fort Rucker's website will remain available to ensure continuous support or -- depending on conditions -- will be re-established as soon as humanly and technologically possible. The website will assist in promoting crisis programs, awareness training and other initiatives relative to the particular crisis situation, both before and after the contingency.
The website will also assist in efforts to respond appropriately, mitigate the effects and sustain the ability of the center and installation to accomplish their missions in the event of a threat or incident.
The website content will then focus on USAACE and the installation's internal audience (Soldiers, Family members, civilian employees and the contractor workforce) since their awareness, understanding and execution of crisis-situation measures are essential. Information and services provided to the public will be limited to the status of USAACE and Fort Rucker facilities and their accessibility to the public.
