"First be right; then take action."

The U.S. Army Inspector General system emerged and developed in 1778 during the Revolutionary War. The Army IG system that enhanced the warfighting and readiness capabilities of the Continental Army is still serving that same critical purpose in today's 21st century Global War on Terror and other overseas contingency operations. The overall concept of the Army IG system has remained constant through more than two centuries of war and peace.

Today's Army IG, like the Army IG of the past, is the extension of the commander's eyes, ears, voice and conscience. IGs serve their commanders and commands by teaching and training, inspecting, assisting, investigating and sometimes auditing. Today, the four functions of Inspections, Assistance, Investigations and Teaching and Training define our Army IG system.
