Abstract : Mission command is a leadership tool that company commanders can use to posture their organizations for success. Distribution company commanders who do not understand their organization s role in the brigade combat team (BCT) distribution network will fail to exercise mission command...In this article, I will discuss company level leadership and the distribution company commander s ability to exercise mission command by providing a clear commander s intent and communicating it through an operation order. I will also discuss distribution company operations, including tactical convoy operations (TCO).
