What is a Battle Buddy?

A battle buddy is a partner assigned to a soldier.  Each battle buddy is expected to assist their partner both in and out of combat.  The battle buddy relationship is informal, and they help each other deal with day-to-day stressors.  Most importantly, battle buddies set the example for one another when it comes to living the values of Loyalty, Duty, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage.
