New Products from CALL

Rich Totleben here, filling in for COL Mueller who is in Europe setting the conditions for our TRADOC Europe collection. CALL is deploying approximately 40 analysts and subject matter experts from TRADOC's Combined Arms Center, multiple TRADOC Centers of Excellence, and other supporting Army units, to observe, collect, and analyze current U.S. Army Europe and Africa (USAREUR-AF) operations in response to the situation in Ukraine. The analysts and subject matter experts will observe U.S. Army and NATO partner units as they conduct missions within USAREUR-AF's designated area of responsibility, interview key leaders, and report key observations and findings for further analysis here at CALL (Main). Our reports will inform Army Senior Leaders on validated observations and findings which will drive relevant changes to doctrine, organization, training and leader development, materiel (equipment), and future force capabilities. The TRADOC Europe collection will be our main effort for the next few months, and will also involve a good number of analysts here at CALL (Main). We will continue our normal Army Lessons Learned Forum battle rhythm and developing products currently in our lessons learned workflow, but new actions will require an internal troop-to-task assessment before we can dedicate resources to other efforts. We are still moving forward with our audiobook project (six CALL products); the hard copy (print) version of "Company Leadership: The First 100 Days” is now available from the Army Training Support Center publications warehouse; and we are working hard to disseminate an update to the very popular MDMP Handbook. We will keep you posted on these and other developments. ---------------------------------Other Announcements--------------------------------- 1. Doctrine.
