FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. - Two months after being posted on the Army Training Network, U.S. Army training materials on the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" or DADT, continue to be the most-downloaded information on the Army training website - with more than 85,000 total downloads.
The DADT video, a summary of top things you need to know, presentation slides and other DADT tools have also been added to the downloadable ATN2GO app. The app, which has been downloaded more than 5,000 times since it was introduced in August, allows anyone with a CAC card or Army Knowledge Online login ID to choose DADT and other Army training materials they want to download to their iPad, iPhone or Android mobile device.
Developed by a Combined Arms Center-Training team, the ATN2GO app is taking training to the Soldier - offering opportunities to view lessons-learned training videos, field manuals and a wide variety of other resources even when an Internet connection isn't available. Plus, the just-released version 2 app allows Soldiers to select which Army Training Network content they want to download to their mobile device, and also can alert them when new content is available to download.
The latest ATN2GO download set also includes:
-- A "Wide Area Security-Patrol Leader" training video set. Similar to Duffer's Drift, the set brings counterinsurgency lessons to life through the vivid dreams of a new platoon leader enroute to Iraq.
-- A promotional video on the Mission Command Process Trainer prototype that's being tested at Fort Hood, Texas, Fort Benning, Ga., and seven other military installations. This Low-Overhead Simulation/Stimulation Capability toolkit inter-operates with other simulations such as Virtual BattleSpace 2 or One Semi-Automated Forces and stimulates mission command systems for staff training. MCPT uses a single laptop to replicate what big systems do.
-- Officer and enlisted Training & Evaluation Outlines submitted by the U.S. Army Chaplain Center and School, from conducting a military memorial service to integrating a Unit Ministry Team into Convoy operations.
