Training for war (combat training) versus "other" training, has been and still is an ethical dilemma that has occupied me since I have joined the U.S. Army in 1984. With limited training resources and most important limited training time, how do we as NCOs and leaders prioritize what is more important? Is it the critical combat focused skills on the battlefield that allow our Soldiers to survive and defeat the enemy, or is it the hours of briefings and lectures consumed in a classroom listening to Equal Opportunity (EO), Prevention Of Sexual Harassment (POSH), and SAEDA, to name a few? I have had this other training pushed down my throat throughout my military career with absolutely no measurable impact on me personally or my duties as a Soldier. To sum it all up, it has and still is for me the biggest waste of precious training resources and time.
