Accountability in the army is important because soldiers as well as equipment, ammunition, food, water and other vital supplies are important for the operation and proper function of the army as a whole. To start with, gear must be accounted for at all times because it is the responsibility of the person it was assigned to, to maintain and properly store. AR 190-51, paragraph 3-8, states that all OCIE issued clothing or gear will be stored in a secure storage container or room with a lock. This policy is also important, due to it making the mission readiness of soldiers more easily ascertained by team leaders, squad leaders, platoon sergeants, and so on. If you don't have accountability of personal gear then when you attempt to conduct a mission you may not have all the gear required, and that could cost you not only failing your mission, but could also cause the slowing of others performing their own missions, potentially causing massive delays depending on what is missing, and who is missing it.
The Importance of Accountability 2 Accountability is of outmost importance in the military. Having accountability of gear, weapons, soldiers, and yourself is what gets the mission done. Not knowing where any of these are can be very detrimental. We do this by reporting to our chain of command, always being at the right place, right time, and right uniform. This chain of command is put in place to keep operations going smoothly in the Army, so that information is passed through as quickly and efficiently as possible.
