    Apr 2, 2015

    FORT POLK, La. ---- The non-commissioned officer is the backbone of the Army.

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. So what's a budget-conscience Army with looming financial cuts from sequestration to do? One idea is to make NCOs, rather than civilians, responsible for more of the "specialized" training.
