Abstract:

Todays training requirements, both required training and administrative requirements verses the current operational tempo. Produces not only ethical dilemmas but also paper drills. I have observed on many occasions where young squad leaders have had so many tasks that they were taking short cuts. This to them seems to be their only course to complete all tasks assigned them. A prime example is the standard POV privately owned vehicle inspection that we complete at the beginning of a long weekend or prior to a leave period. We fill out the paper work and just have someone sign them. As opposed to physically checking the vehicle as required by regulation. Is it better to streamline the system than just to add more to make everyone feel better We as an Army have many regulations and requirements that means well but we have to temper them to attainable goals. We apply many requirements down to the squad level that could be streamlined to a higher level and a more efficient system.
