Abstract : The national imperatives of our economy reflect directly on military budget austerity and manpower drawdowns, yet the education of officers must not and should not suffer. The history and evolution of PME and a different approach can provide the answers to the where and how the PME system should proceed. What results from this prescribed alternative approach is an educated officer versed in the various levels of war, capable of participating directly in the formulation of national security policy.
