More On Leaders
The Army is reviewing it's methods of developing, training, educating and assigning leaders, such that they may become "pentathletes," whose versatility and athleticism-- qualities that reflect the essence of our Army-- will enable them to learn and adapt in ambiguous situations in a constantly evolving environment.
