By Maj. Gen. Mark T. McQueen | 05/05/2018

One of the hallmarks of exceptional organizations is that it learns, grows, refines and develops itself over time. This is certainly the case for the United States Army. Over the past 233 years, the role and purpose of the Army has not changed. It is still the force which was established by our founding fathers to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, to secure the Nation. However, what has changed is how the Army accomplishes its purpose. Over the centuries, many outside factors have changed that have served to make our Army better. Specifically, we have seen significant changes in our doctrine, organizations, train... Read More...

Until I retire and even after that, I will continue to stress the importance of Soldiers getting their Professional Military Education (PME) completed as well as being Duty MOS Qualified (DMOSQ). Soldiers continue to complain about the difficulties of not being able to get into BLC, ALC and SLC but the truth of the matter is many only want to go to school when it’s convenient for them. You can’t afford to pick and choose when it’s the ‘right time’. Every military school I attended, I was told when I’m going and that was the end of the conversation! It’s imperative that you are completely trained in both your duty MOS and in your leadership c...

The opportunity to wear the drill sergeant hat is earned and not given. The U.S. Army Drill Sergeant Academy, located at Fort Jackson, accepts only the most qualified Non-Commissioned Officers, and this month hosted its largest ever primarily Army Reserve class. The ceremony took place in the presence of family, friends, and supporters of the Drill Sergeants... Read More...

The Name They Will Never Forget
The Name They Will Never Forget

SFC Bradford Griffith | 05/05/2018

The Army offers a near infinite number of career paths to the few citizen-volunteers that qualify to serve. The Surgeons at Walter Reed, tank mechanics at Ft. Hood, and Special Forces operators around the world have one thing in common; they all remember the name of their Drill Sergeant.  Without hesitation, they will recall not just the name, but tell you a story about their most memorable Drill Sergeant.  Only the top 10 percent of Non-Commissioned Officers in the Army are selected to attend the United States Army Drill Sergeant Academy at Fort Jackson, S.C.  Of those, even fewer will graduate, don the iconic Campaign Hat, and earn th...
