Army Training Support Enterprise
SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING
"At the core of that is strong garrison leadership. We've got to make sure we get it right across the full spectrum -- units, Soldiers, families. The only way I know how to get at [suicide prevention] is through leadership and leaders focusing on their people...Every single person in this audience is a leader. People have to be bold and step in, and this has to do with taking care of each other, leading and mentoring those who come behind you. You can't just passively sit and watch this happen."
- Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Navy Adm. Mike Mullen, while speaking to Soldiers and airmen at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., underscored strong garrison leadership as the core for suicide prevention

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"I don't believe for a minute that the military is creating this situation where people want to take their lives - not for a minute. The military's not causing it - but the military can solve the problem ... It's unacceptable. We've got to solve this problem."
- Retired Army Maj. Drew Dix, a Medal of Honor recipient, tells Guard members attending the 39th annual conference of the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States in St. Louis on Aug. 8, 2010, that leadership at all levels is key to cutting the spike in servicemember suicides.

Army Training Support Enterprise to Streamline Training Support
What is it?
The Army Training Support Enterprise (TSE) represents the entire organization of training support. TSE includes all products, services, processes, actions and functions necessary to manage, develop and deliver integrated, operationally relevant training support capabilities to help Soldiers, civilians, leaders and mission/combatant commanders support Army readiness.
What has the Army done?
The Army Training and Doctrine Command designated the Combined Arms Center-Training (CAC-T) to establish the TSE. To ensure the TSE becomes a reality, CAC-T is conducting meetings and briefings with individuals involved with training support at all levels to educate them on the who, why, what, when, where and how of the TSE. Through these meetings, CAC-T is communicating the value-added, establishing responsibilities, and gaining consensus with its customers and partners.
What does the Army have planned?
CAC-T and others in the training support community have begun working together to define the governance processes critical to ensure that objectives are achieved, risks are managed appropriately, and resources are used responsibly. The governance processes will help bring together managers and others involved in training support under a single umbrella to collaboratively identify like requirements and opportunities for leveraging capabilities across programs and lines of operation. A Program Management Review for several programs under the TSE is scheduled for 4th quarter FY10 to help align governance processes.
Why is this important to the Army?
Without TSE processes that eliminate stovepipes and enable integration and synchronization of capabilities, the Army cannot optimize training support solutions that are fully responsive to customer needs. Once fully implemented, the TSE will help distribute limited resources to provide training support capabilities that achieve the optimal balance between effectiveness, efficiency and strategic risk.
