As the ADA commandant, your success is an integral part of our overall mission. We want to know how USAADASCH can serve YOU!
While attending the CGSC Class 12-02 Branch Day, there was a discussion about now that siADA is part of the Fires Center of Excellence that there is a push to have ADA aligned with the Fires Warfighting Function (WFF) instead of the Protection WFF. I personally believe we should remain in the protection WFF but would be interested in seeing the reasoning of why the shift to Fires WFF is important enough to do.
If this is happening, is the ADA Schoolhouse going to prepare young ADA officers with the skill sets to be a “Fires Officer”? The branches are quite technically and tactically different and I wonder what the development path or the expectations of this Officer. Having worked with Field Artillery Officers on an IBCT Staff in Afghanistan, working the A2C2 was kind of similar, but the knowledge of the field artillery weapon systems and their capabilities would be hard to master unless it was something learned early and often in your professional development.

Incorporate into training the multitasking between being a 14 series and also working in a S shop. Few of us work with our skill set on a constant basis, most hold other shop positions in the BN and BDE level. Some never even see our MOS again. And some don’t see it untill a field problem or TABLE VIII eval. But yet we’re all expected to be able to do land and ammo, or schools, or TDY, or Orderly room, ect. based on the MTOE. Is there a way to prepare us for those tasks since we’re inevitably going to be doing them.
