The USAHEC Mission and Organization

The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center engages, inspires, and informs the Army, the American people, and global partners with a unique and enduring source of knowledge and thought. The Center is an integral part of the War College, and maintains the knowledge repositories that support scholarship and research about the U.S. Army and its operating environment. To optimize our patron centered, digitally enabled organization, the Center is comprised of three functional areas interconnected through day-to-day operations, but each with a primary focus.
