President of the United States Jan. 30, 2015, Washington Obama recognizes giantsEnabling, empowering leadersReady and Resilient enables and empowers commands and unit leaders to take care of Soldiers, Army civilians and their families. Commands and Army leaders must be able to identify risks and support the overall personal and professional growth of those in their organizations. They must foster an environment based on Army values where individuals treat themselves and others with dignity and respect, build trust, encourage help-seeking behaviors and enable their teams to recognize warning signs and become interveners instead of bystanders.

Should changes come, NTC expects to have nine brigade rotations a year, rather than the cur rent 10, to allow for the extended stay, Ensslin said.

Also, over the last two years, NTC has become volved earlier in training when they arrive and at minimizing set-up time. Finally, there is a move to include more deci sive action scenarios in training, as well as more counterinsurgency-type scenarios. Lt. Col. Mick Braun, deputy commanding of noticed the change to more force-on-force train ing. The last time he attended training at NTC, Braun said his brigade was preparing to deploy to Afghanistan. Then, there had been a heavy emphasis on living out of a forward operating base, protecting a forward operating base and interacting with locals and learning their customs and culture. Now, Braun said, theres a greater emphasis on decisive action. NTC pilot rotation seeks savings; extends training window
