What should a leader say to Soldiers and their family members when they are questioned about the Army’s position on certain issues that affect their quality of life?  
Obviously, leaders need to provide as honest and thorough a response as possible in order to communicate the Army’s position. However, the amount of information relayed to them depends on the leaders’ knowledge of the situation as well as the security level of the information associated with it. For example, there may be quality of life issues that some individuals feel are not getting noticed when in fact – they may be included in the Army’s “master plan.” It is important to note that Army leaders are faced with making difficult decisions about how to use the Army’s limited resources and must prioritize all the competing demands. Many times, because of the dollar amounts of military construction projects for example, they have to submit their recommendations to Congress for their consideration and approval. Another example of an issue that affects the quality of life of Soldiers and family members is when restrictions are placed on their movements (particularly in overseas locations) because of security threats in the local military and civilian communities. Although the intelligence that may have caused military leaders to impose these restrictions may be classified, the threats are real and Army leaders are responsible for ensuring the security of its Soldiers, civilian workforce, and military family members.
