In addition to the training videos, CCL publishes books like "A Platoon Leader Tour," a compilation of reflections by platoons leaders during a year-long deployment in Iraq. The candor of these young officers is striking, and very helpful in giving cadets a sense of what they will face once they graduate. A similar book is offered to Company Commanders, "Taking the Guidon."
Our nation already boasts the best trained Army in the world. The efforts of CCL will ensure that we continue to build on this success and to improve upon it using the lessons being learned across the globe. I feel as if my tax dollars are being well spent.
