The Army’s Command Sergeant Major Problem

A poignant and predictive analysis of what two senior officers observed in 1988 and there implied predictions for what would occur if the trend were not thwarted.

These gentlemen might hardly recognize what has become of the Army in the years since this article was published. What they saw as out of the ordinary but dangerous anomalies are not standard procedure for Command Sergeants Major.

Parameters removed this article from their digital repository.  This is an important article, it describes an Army where behaviors people take as the standard now were not the case so long ago.

I have added this important document to the CORE depository because I care for the profession I retired from.  There may be hope that some of the disruptive and destructive behaviors the damage good order and discipline might one day be put in check.  Failing that, this is an important historical piece that proclaims to all that read it, things are not right.
