Staff Ride at Kings Mountain State Park
Leadership from across the 108th Training Command met at Kings Mountain State Park in Blacksburg, South Carolina on June 4 for a Staff Ride with Harold Skinner, 81st Readiness Division Historian.
While learning about the Battle of Kings Mountain (October 7, 1780), the leaders drew parallels between modern day engagements, allowing for discussion on tactical and operational levels of war. Reviewing historical battles like this, through an operational and strategic lens, allows leaders to see the consequences of actions on the battlefield. It’s also an engaging way to ‘sharpen the saw’ in terms of leadership development.
