AUSA Cancels Annual Meeting, Show (Oct. 9)



ARLINGTON, Va.---Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan, president of the Association of the United States Army, announced that the 47th Annual Meeting of the Association of the United States Army will be suspended for the year 2001.

This decision was made in conjunction with senior Army leadership. At the same time a similar decision was made on the Army Ten-Miler.

In light of the ongoing operations, and plans being developed for the "War on Terrorism,'' it has become impractical, if not impossible, for the Army to support the largest gathering of the Army family at the annual AUSA meeting in Washington.

Gen. Sullivan stated that it was imperative that there be no distraction for Army leaders as the execution of "Operation Enduring Freedom'' continues and enters a new phase for America's Army.

Instead, the Association's full focus and energy will be in support of the troops and families from the Army and the other services in this extended campaign.
