The DoD Strategy for Resilient and Healthy Defense Communities sets forth the Department’s commitment to fulfilling what defense leaders say is a national security imperative and moral obligation to provide the total force with healthy, safe, functional, and resilient environments in which to live and work.

Brendan Owens, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Energy, Installations, and Environment, said the key to enhancing military readiness is putting the quality of life of those who serve front and center.

“People are our most important asset. When you look at what the strategy is after, what’s at its core is making sure our readiness is enhanced by the infrastructure on our installations,” Owens said during a briefing on the strategy at the Pentagon today.
