The fast pace that our army is moving at today, requires our senior leaders and junior Non-Commission Officers to have a better focus on developing the skills necessary to be successful on today‚Äôs battlefield.

I believe we need to keep maintain focus on the future of our greatest commodity, our Soldiers.
