    AY17 Defense Management Course Directive Prof Louis G Yuengert Course Directive by the US Army War College "Successful warfighting and other military operations do not occur without well-trained, properly equipped, and doctrinally sound forces.

    Futures Seminar 2016 - The United States Army in 2030 and Beyond Samuel R. White, Jr. Paper by the US Army War College, Center for Strategic Leadership "Additive to the experience of the AAN Seminar students, Futures Seminar students and faculty further contribute to the Army’s understanding of the future force by substantively participating in force development experimentation, wargames and symposia. This participation is made possible by an excellent partnership with the Army Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) – primarily through the Chief of Staff of the Army’s year-long study program – Unified Quest. This year, Futures Seminar students filled leadership roles during the deep future wargame, serving as either combined/joint task force commanders or as chiefs of staff."

    The USAWC Strategy Model in Moldova: Developing the Master's Course (Level II PME) for Military and Civilian Professionals COL Florian Circiumaru, Colonel Mark V Montesclaros Issue Paper by the US Army War College, Center for Strategic Leadership "Beginning in 2009, a multinational team of NATO professional military education (PME) experts began providing assistance to the Republic of Moldova’s Armed Forces at the Moldovan Military Institute (later Academy [MMA]) in Chisinau. The team’s broad purpose was to help the Moldovan military adjust from a Soviet-style military educational system to one that more closely mirrored NATO and Western standards. While constitutionally a neutral country, Moldova is a Partnership for Peace (PfP) Consortium member and participant in the Defense Education Enhancement Program (DEEP). As part of the DEEP process, the NATO team, co-led by Colonel (Ret.) John F. Troxell of the USAWC’s Strategic Research Department, was initially charged with two major efforts."

Some ideas and recommendations are specific and affect narrow slices of the Army; others are broad and span multiple services or components. Some are tactical; others strategic. Some very aspirational; others very practical. Regardless, they are the thoughts of strategic thinkers who have embraced their responsibility to help posture the enterprise for the future by thinking and writing about tough issues. The enterprise is better for their effort."
