“Instruction in the art and science of warfare through training and education is the time tested method for molding combat leaders. Training provides the means to complete a job or an assignment. It can be given directly to an individual or to a larger group or unit. Education provides for intellectual development and the cultivation of wisdom and judgment in an officer. It also provides the ability to deal with situations unrelated to job
assignment and prepare officers for even greater future responsibilities.” (Lehner, 2008, p.1).
