The article focuses on the program that will secure the compatibility of land uses with the army installation which will also protect the environment. The army supervises more than 15 million acres in which more than 175 endangered plants and animals species are found. There are army installations that experienced training restriction all over the country due to development, inappropriate land uses and the existence of endangered species. The Army Compatible User Buffer (ACUB) program is designed to resolve the installations incompatibility issues that will ensure compatible land uses in the area of army installations which will protect the training missions, preserve the natural resources as well as the quality of life in the local community.
