The purpose of the Board was to determine the adequacy and appropriateness of the current Army school system and the education and individual school training of Army officers in light of responsibilities which will confront the Military Establishment for the foreseeable future and to recommend such changes in the direction, structure, or operation of the system or in the academic program during the next decade as will make the greatest contribution to the discharge of those responsibilities. The study examines the present system for education and training of Army officers of all components from the time of commissioning until retirement at service schools, service colleges, and civilian educational, commercial, and industrial institutions evaluates the system against the background of the current and projected world and Defense environment, the technological explosion, and military requirements across the total spectrum of conflict and recommends such changes in the system as are appropriate for the period 1966-1976.
