FORT MONROE, Va. (July 31, 2009) - The U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command will host its semi-annual TRADOC Senior Leaders Conference (TSLC) in Gettysburg, Pa. from Aug. 18 to 20, but you don't have to be general officer to get a front-row seat.

TRADOC has invited writers from Small Wars Journal ( and The National Journal to bring the discussion to your computer.

Titled "Next Battles", TRADOC leaders will discuss what changes are going on within the organization to prepare Soldiers for what lies ahead.

The Small Wars Journal will reserve space on their Web site to provide up-to-the-minute blog updates during sessions where readers can participate in dialogue on a discussion board.

Traditionally, TSLC has been reserved for promotable colonels and higher ranking officers. This will be the first TSLC covered by outside media in conjunction to internal public affairs.

TRADOC is the Army's proponent for Soldier education, concept development, and doctrine development.
