The article presents an interview with Addison D. Davis IV, deputy assistant secretary of the U.S. Army for environment, safety and occupational health. When asked about the way in which the mission and training of the Army affect the environment, he argues that they are directly linked since the environment has to be sustained to be able to support training and mission accomplishment. He also reveals that the service is integrating environmental considerations into its procurement decisions.
