Learn While Serving
The Army in order to be an effective fighting organization must
also be an educational institution. Its student body consists of everyone
in the Army. Its educational program covers much more than the
basic and special military skills these are only the more familiar
parts of the program. Modern army operations involve almost every
branch of knowledge and technical skill. The increasing use of com
plex equipment of all kinds is only one reason why the soldier of today
needs to be better trained and better educated than soldiers of the
past. Another reason is that the soldier of a free nation serves best
when he knows why he serves and in the world of today he simply
cannot know this without some educational background to help him
understand the various factors that make his service necessary. In
today's American Army the educational activities are aimed at pro
ducing soldiers who know how to fight—and why.
EDUCATION HAS ONE PURPOSE
The educational opportunities available in the Army have only one
purpose: To improve its ability to accomplish its mission. But whether
we are taking about training programs the courses offered at the
service schools or the many kinds of off-duty study opportunities im
proving the ability of the Army to defend the United States means im
proving the ability of its members—of you personally. How much these
opportunities benefit you depend on how well you make use of them.
If you don't know that the opportunities exist they can't help you at
all. Once you are aware of the opportunities the rest is up to you.
Every soldier learns something while serving but some soldiers learn
more than others because they are determined to get the most out of
There are educational opportunities available over and above the
required training that all soldiers get. All of them help to make Ameri
can soldiers the best trained and best educated soldiers in the world.
ON-THE-JOB-TRAINING which carries a large share of the train
ARMY SERVICE SCHOOLS which train personnel in most of the
several hundred MOS's.
OVERSEA COMMAND SCHOOLS the "service schools" in the
Far East and Europe.
UNIT SCHOOLS which take care of immediate training problems
TRAINING DIVISION AND RTC SPECIALIST COURSES which
are open to personnel Army-wide.
LEADERSHIP COURSES of the combat arms and services which
train for non-commissioned officer responsibilities.
OFFICER CANDIDATE SCHOOLS and the UNITED STATES
ARMY EXTENSION COURSES with which we can improve our
proficiency in our spare time.
TROOP EDUCATION PROGRAM which makes it possible for us
to keep up our academic and vocational education while on active duty.
BETTER JOBS PROMOTIONS
These paths of learning are open to us as long as we are in uni
form. They can take us to higher skills better jobs promotions pro
fessional advancement greater knowledge of the world and under
standing of the great issues confronting us.
Nothing that we learn whether in military skills or general know
ledge is ever wasted. Never has it been more true than today that
"knowledge is strength" both from the standpoint of the individual
fighting soldier and the country he serves.
Like everything else how much we get out of our military service
depends upon how much we put into it. It can be a very constructive
experience if we take advantage of the Army's many educational op
