Marine Combat Training? SgtMajor Of The Army..."Naw, we're not gonna do that"!

via Military.com
The drill sergeant at the U.S. Army Signal School at Fort Gordon, Georgia and former Marine asked the Sergeant Major of the Army Michael Grinston to consider creating additional, combat-focused training like the three-week MCT course all new Marines go to after boot camp during a forum at the 2019 Association of the United States Army's annual meeting in Washington, D.C.

"What is the possibility of bringing something like Marine Combat Training into the force to build up that lethality within the soft-skilled [military occupational specialties] and not just the infantry and combat arms?" Broadhead asked. "After Boot Camp, they go to three weeks of infantry training then they go on to their MOS training."

Grinston appeared surprised by the question. "Yeah, we are not going to do that, probably," he said, prompting a few chuckles from the audience.

Well I guess that's that.
