- ensure the long-term viability of the All-Volunteer Force by sustaining the required human resources of that force during all levels of conflict and economic conditions;
- enable the quality of life for members of the Armed Forces and the other uniformed services and their families in a manner that fosters successful recruitment, retention and careers for members of the Armed Forces and the other uniformed services; and
- modernize and achieve fiscal sustainability for the compensation and retirement systems for the Armed Services and the other uniformed services for the 21st century.
