Jay Luvas, Military History: Is It Still Practicable?

The NCO Leadership Center of Excellence believes history is practicable and has created a website through the Office of the Historian to receive written or recorded contributions from all service members, past and present, to tell their NCO story.

“A profession which started more than 200 years ago, has progressed over time,” Dr. Everett Dague, Command Historian, NCOL CoE said. “Today’s NCO knows more, trains more, and has more responsibility than any NCO in history.”

The purpose of the website, he said, is to collect information on the NCO profession over the years, then disseminate the information to the shared experience section of the website as a reliable resource after is has been analyzed and interpreted. Dague added that all contributions are categorized based off the six NCO Common Core competencies: Readiness, Leadership, Training Management, Communications, Operations, and Program Management. The website is an emerging product designed to provide leadership and mentorship, which can help develop, integrate and deliver training readiness throughout the NCO Corps. …Read More
