Army Chief Warrant Officer reflects on Army career, benefits

Rachel Deloach

A move to the United States and a conversation with a college roommate put one immigrant on the path to military service and an assignment at one of the U.S. Army’s four major commands. Chief Warrant Officer 4 Walner Nelson, who currently serves at Army Materiel Command, immigrated to the U.S. with his family from Haiti in 1995. His father would tell him and his siblings, “This is the land of opportunity – you can do anything you want.” Visit

Was Galwan Valley Clash Failure Of Intelligence Management Or A Decision Making Debacle?

Vappala Balachandran

It is a good trend that several people, including retired military officers, are now raising questions on why our top-heavy intelligence structure is unable to obtain prior intelligence on incidents like Pulwama or Galwan which result in loss of precious lives of soldiers. Why are we merely content with uttering clichés on their heroism after their deaths? In the Galwan Valley clash, we saw bromides like “A zillion salutes to the brave hearts” or “maarte maarte mare” without the government doing anything substantial towards intelligence-led preventive action. As a result, the public remembers these incidents only as ‘intelligence failures’. Visit

Book Review: The Elements of Style, 4th Edition by William Shrunk & E.B. White

Lieutenant Colonel Christopher L’Heureux

Part of a book club a few years back, I read and discussed a book that half the group thought read like a college paper. They were turned-off, their attention applied to structure over the content. This skewed the subsequent discussion away from the author’s arguments towards the monotonous tone of the book. It was a well-reasoned and thoughtful thesis, but it did not capture the attention of at least half of us. How do you prevent that in your own writing? Visit

US Army Command General Staff College: The Lobotomy That Never Was

Billy Folinusz

On July 10, 2019, I reported to Fort Leavenworth and the Command General Staff College. I had prepared myself to be led into a room with a doctor holding an orbitoclast for the lobotomy I had been promised. After some quick in-processing, I received administrative information before they sent me on my way. I was relieved to still have my mind, but surely the lobotomy everyone had promised would happen later in the year. Visit

Exploitative, Transactional, Coercive, Cultural, and Contractual: Toward a Better Theory of Proxy War

Amos Fox

While it might not seem self-evident, proxy wars are today’s dominant form of war. A quick survey of contemporary armed conflicts shows that proxy war rears its enigmatic head frequently and repeatedly. To understand the extent to which this is true, one only has to go so far as recent American combatant command congressional testimony. In recent years all of the American geographic combatant commands, with the exception of United States Northern Command, have discussed the significant role proxies play within their respective areas of operation.

U.S. Army CGSC: Overview and Advice for the Class of 2021

When I found out that I was selected to attend resident Intermediate Level Education (ILE) at Fort Leavenworth, I immediately realized how little I knew about the course. My research brought up numerous articles from officers discussing their year at Fort Leavenworth. These articles are what I found most useful and are the reason that I decided to write my own. Hopefully, my experience and advice serve two purposes. The first is to assist future classes in understanding the course of instruction and aid in your preparation for the “Best Year of Your Life.” Second, this article will be my attempt to, as General Funk says, “Leave the jersey in a better place than I found it.” Visit
