Career Officer Education in the 70's--A New Look.
Habermehl, Robert N.
The current career officer education system is examined from the branch officer basic course through the war college level. An alternative system is proposed that would require a much higher level of initiative by the individual and a much smaller investment in manpower and facilities by the Army while accomplishing the same basic objectives. Data were gathered by literature search and derived from personal experiences. The proposed system which places essentially all education after the basic officer course on a correspondence basis with brief resident sessions would greatly reduce the fifteen to twenty-five percent of the duty time that a career officer spends as a student during the first twenty years of service.
