FORT BENNING, GA -- Twenty-four students representing seven nations from Central and South America and the U.S., presented their individual versions of a company level operations order April 3 and 4 at the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation.

Students used techniques learned during the Troop Leading Procedures block of instruction and analyzed the task given to them based on mission, enemy, terrain, climate, time, troops available and civilian considerations. With the analysis they developed an operations order to employ their company in both defensive and offensive postures.

During the presentation they used maps, overlays and schemes of maneuver to support the oral presentation of the OPORD.

The Captain's Career Course lasts 26 weeks and concludes July 25.
