In an effort to reach out to the military community and share some of my thoughts on the civilian education-army training nexus that is the “My Public Affairs” blog, I started a discussion thread on Military.com.
My main point is summarized thusly: If the tasks that Soldiers perform are different now than they were 100 years ago, would it be wise to adjust the training methods to teach those tasks? Some say no, I say yes. That's all. Relax.
With emphasis on the last word. Granted, I was a bit provocative and sarcastic in my original post, but I didn’t realize that I would strike such a sensitive chord in some of the Soldiers.
Evidence, and a best of list of the counterpoints:
“Sounds like you'll have yourself an excellent LIBS' rendition of Basic Training . . .you puzzy.”
