The Army will celebrate its 247th birthday June 14. Since its founding, the Army pioneered the nation’s geospatial intelligence and for 26 years, NGA and the Army have partnered in shaping the GEOINT enterprise.
That strong partnership continues today as Active, Reserve and National Guard Army soldiers serve as integral members of NGA’s workforce. These service members fill a wide range of mission and leadership responsibilities throughout the agency. Each brings their diverse background and skillsets to NGA to deliver world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders.
In addition to the Army personnel serving within NGA, NGA hosts the Army GEOINT Battalion as a tenant unit at its Springfield, Virginia, campus. Integrating this premier intelligence and security command unit further strengthens the partnership between the Army and NGA and enriches the GEOINT tradecraft.
Meet a few of our outstanding Army service members and their thoughts on the Army, NGA and GEOINT.
