The latest version of the Association of the U.S. Army’s top-to-bottom guide to the organization, mission, structure and operations of the Army is now available.

Profile of the United States Army: A Reference Handbook is updated and published every two years, and it’s designed to be a useful, user-friendly guide for soldiers, new recruits, veterans, civilians and Army families.

The 2022 edition is available for download here.

This latest edition of Profile of the United States Army provides an updated and comprehensive summary of Army operations, commitments and activities around the world, contains information and graphics on soldiers and their uniforms—including the new Army Green Service Uniform—and describes the mission and ongoing activities of each Army command, service component command and direct reporting unit.

There also are maps showing current Army commands, corps and divisions, Army National Guard divisions and Army Reserve divisions and functional commands.

In response to reader requests, this edition brings back the glossary of military acronyms.

“AUSA fully supports the Total Army—Regular Army, Army National Guard, Army Reserve and Army civilians,” retired Gen. Bob Brown, AUSA president and CEO, writes in the foreword. “Profile of the United States Army is an integral part of this support.”

He adds, “In publishing this Profile, AUSA seeks to provide a greater understanding and appreciation of the people, families, institutions and organizations who strive to maintain the world’s greatest army.”
