A DOPT -A-S CHOOL M ISSION The mission of the AAS program is to routinely contribute military resources and services to schools in order to nurture the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth of children in the greater Fort Hood area. This is grounded on the conviction that a general diffusion of knowledge is essential for the welfare of the nation that we, as soldiers in the United States Army, defend and for the preservation of the liberties and rights of citizenship. It is further grounded on the conviction that a successful public education system is directly related to a dedicated and supportive family and community, and that parental and community involvement in the school is essential for the maximum educational development of a child.
