Signal School Commandant Says Soldiers Must Train for the Next Conflict

Brig. Gen. Robert L. Edmonson II, USA, the 38th chief of signal and Signal School commandant, was guest speaker at the chapter's June luncheon. He shared some thoughts and challenges about his leadership role. After giving a brief history of the Training and Doctrine Command, the general addressed the need to train for change. This means broadening one's assignments. Soldiers must be multidisciplined instead of specialized and build tomorrow's signal community requirements today. The next conflict will never be like the last conflict. Soldiers must be taught how to think and not what to think. The modern Army must prepare for large-scale operations in a contested and congested environment. Industry must evaluate relevancy and change as needed. Solutions need to be cheaper, easier to use and survivable. The chapter thanks Gen. Edmondson for his passionate and informative presentation.
