Being accountable for equipment is the most important thing to being successful in the military. In the past couple hundred years, the Military has been successful at winning wars because we are the best equipped. To stay successful, we must keep accountability of all our equipment.

When we first sign up for the military, everyone is issued basic military clothing and gear to get through basic training. This is just the start of what you will receive through out your military career. The military issues you everything that you will need to be successful for missions. After you complete basic training and advanced individual training, you go to your gaining unit. Once you at your unit, you will go to CIF where you will receive more equipment to train properly for what ever your mission may be. Keeping accountability for this equipment is very important. Different units must be prepared for anything. This means having all your equipment at all times. If you do not have all your equipment you may not be prepared for the mission and that could effect your units readiness. The army depends on each unit to be prepared for missions when during time of war and even during peace time.

Before deployments, each soldier will go through RFI and recieve more equipment that is needed for battle. All this equipment and gear the military issues is to make each soldier prepared for war and in peace time missions. The military has spent many of millions of dollars researching and designing clothing and equipment to make the soldiers, the units, and the military successful. If we don't account for this equipment then we are not doing out part in being successful in the military.

Equipment is not just individual gear, but everything that is related to the military. From the boots on your feet to vehicles. Everything is accounted for and must remain accounted for. Some things are expendable.
