Thirteen non-commissioned officers of this installation graduated from Battle Staff NCO Course 15-14 at a ceremony here, June 25.

The NCOs – staff sergeant to master sergeant – completed the training through video teleconference broadcast from Fort Bliss, Texas. The 22-day course originates at the United States Army Sergeants Major Academy and prepares NCOs for staff operations at battalion-level units and higher. According to the USASMA, the training introduces sergeants to the duties of other staff sections. It provides understanding of the processes of tactical planning and operations, so NCOs can assist in all functions within a tactical operations center.

The USASMA Web site list of topics covered by the course includes mission command, staff operations, urban operations, contemporary operational environment, graphics and overlays, military decision making process, and sustainment and support operations.

The graduation address was given by Command Sgt. Maj. Michael Mosites, command sergeant major of 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment. He told the graduates that the experiences they’ve learned and gained through the course will enhance their careers and allows them to apply today’s doctrine to any combat mission around the world.

“The training you just completed has made you a combat-multiplier for any unit from this day forward,” Mosites said. “Congratulations. Train, lead, win.”
