To be your “Home Away From Home:”  a desired overseas military community in which to live, work and play throughout change.

The vision of Home Away from Home demands that we provide a means for our team to develop respect for all personnel with whom they interact during the workday. As we implement this plan we want all involved to understand why selfless service is an Army value and why we strive toward such service in executing base operations support functions. To foster this sense of respect and pride – and to provide a forum for positive feedback – we will develop our awards program to honor our team members who exceed expectations. This plan is committed to giving our workforce the means to increase their personal integrity, which is the guiding force for achieving the Home Away from Home vision. A guiding principle of this strategic plan is that employees must be empowered to make the correct decisions to ensure the delivery Home Away from Home service at all times.
