U.S. Army Culture as an offset

 

Written by Col. John P. Cogbill
3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division

U.S. Army Acquisition Support CenterFort Belvoir, VA – Innovation in the Army needs to come from the top down and the ground up, and Soldiers at all levels need freedom, time and equipment to make it happen.

Maintaining overmatch against any and all potential adversaries—known as an offset strategy—places a premium on new, potentially disruptive technologies. However, technology alone will not maintain the offset.

An effective and enduring offset will require a culture of innovation that enables critical thinking and the application of the myriad emerging military and commercial technologies to address the full spectrum of national security challenges in an increasingly hostile and complex world.

Col. John P. Cogbill, right, and Brig. Gen. K. Todd Royar, 101st Airborne Division deputy commanding general (Support), discuss 3rd BCT training inside the brigade tactical operations center in May. Hands-on training like this helps reinforce classroom instruction and encourages adaptive thinking, the author argues. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt. Cody Harding, 3-101)

Fort Campbell: Physical Therapy That Will Not Quit

 

Written by Mary Therese Griffin
U.S. Army Warrior Care and Transition

U.S. Army Warrior Care and TransitionArlington, VA – Make no mistake. Lindsey Davison is a tough physical therapist. She wants results.

The Fort Campbell Kentucky Adaptive Reconditioning Program Manager attended the Warrior Care and Transition Leadership Training Summit in early November at Fort Belvoir, VA where she very candidly told the audience of over 80 plus leaders from the Warrior Transition Battalions, her secret to assist in readiness.

“This is a hard position, I feel, for a battalion commander to be in. Most of the time WTB commanders are not medical officers they are infantry, artillery, etc. and they have a business to run.” Davison feels this is where she and the rest of the WTB staff are there to fully support their commanders.
