Warrior Tasks and Battle Drills

What is it? A Warrior Task and Battle Drill (WTBD) is defined as a skill taught in either Basic Combat Training or One Station Unit Training to train Soldiers how to survive in combat.

What has the Army done?

What efforts does the Army plan to continue in the future? The new Basic Officer Leaders Course (BOLC), scheduled for implementation in 2006, also incorporates WTBD.

Why is this important to the Army? As combat situations expand across the battlefield it is important that all Soldiers possess specific skills needed to survive. WTBD produce Soldiers who are better prepared to fight on today's battlefield immediately upon arrival at their first unit of assignment.
