TRADOC Commanding General, Gen. William S. Wallace

GEN Wallace's Seuss-isms on Leadership

In a speech to the 2008 graduating class of the United States Military Preparatory School at Fort Monmouth, N.J., the TRADOC Commanding General, Gen. William S. Wallace gave future West Point cadets a unique perspective on Army Strong leadership.

General Wallace relayed his leadership philosophy to future Army officers conveyed through the works of Dr. Seuss; both timeless and classic.

Commandant directs CGSC students to engage media

Students attending the Command and General Staff College's Intermediate Level Education course are becoming more familiar with the media than ever before.

"There are instantaneous communications taking place around the world and we need to figure out how to take advantage of that opportunity instead of looking at it as a nemesis," said CGSC Commandant Lt. Gen. William Caldwell IV.

Army to open preparatory school for prospective Soldiers

The U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) will open the Army Preparatory School Aug. 4 at Fort Jackson, S.C., to give qualifying young men and women an opportunity to earn their General Educational Development (GED) credentials before they begin Basic Combat Training (BCT).

The four-week pilot course will be open only to recruits without a high school diploma and who have scored in the top 50 percentile on the military aptitude test and meet or exceed all other physical and character standards for becoming high-performing Soldiers. The ultimate goal of the program is for qualifying students to earn full-fledged high school diplomas.
