Abstract:

This paper is about command in the training base. It is not a paper of dos and donts nor does it contain specific directions for doing things. Instead, it presents the command philosophy of one former training battalion commander through a selected number of subjects normally associated with command. The subjects addressed are those considered most important in a survey of ten former and present training battalion commanders. In general, the philosophy is soldier-oriented with emphasis on the importance of the command climate, communications, teaching subordinates, responsibility, honesty, and training and caring for soldiers.
