New AM 1 “This is Army MARS” Issued

The U.S. Army Military Auxiliary Radio System (ARMARS) is an elite group of dedicated citizen
volunteers who support a Global High Frequency Enterprise Radio Network (GHFERN). The GHFERN
provides contingency radio communications to the Department of Defense (DoD) in a variety of
circumstances, including complex catastrophes and cyber denied or impaired conditions. MARS is
the program that trains, organizes and tasks volunteer Amateur Radio operators to support the
GHFRERN.
Army MARS citizen-volunteers demonstrate the Army’s values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-
Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage, freely and generously giving their time and
resources as a reflection and measure of devotion to our nation. The world has changed
dramatically since the MARS structure was first developed and implemented but what has not
changed is the dedication of these citizens to serve.
