Army One is the callsign of any United States Army aircraft carrying the President of the United States. From 1957 until 1976, this was usually an Army helicopter transporting the President. Prior to 1976, responsibility for helicopter transportation of the President was divided between the Army and the U.S. Marine Corps until the Marine Corps was given the sole responsibility of transporting the President by helicopter.
Wherever Army One flies, it is met on the ground by at least one soldier in full dress uniform. An Army aircraft carrying the Vice President is designated Army Two.
