  • NCOs: C-IED 'Train the trainer' pilot launched at Fort Polk

    Apr 2, 2015

    FORT POLK, La. ---- The non-commissioned officer is the backbone of the Army. NCOs, from corporals to command sergeants major, are ultimately responsible for their Soldiers' training, appearance and welfare. In recent years, the Army has given much of the training responsibility for certain skill sets to teams of civilians (all with extensive military/combat backgrounds) to help prepare Soldiers for deployment. The success rate of that training is more than adequate, but comes at price ---- it takes money to pay salaries, buy equipment and maintain teaching facilities.
