OCOT SFC James Swenson attended the "How the Army Runs" (HTAR) course from January 6 to the 31 at the Army Force Management School. The course educates Force Managers on how the Army runs in the current Operating Environment. HTAR teaches the roles, missions, and functions of the seven interdependent and continuous processes within the Army Force Management Model, the nine Force Integration Functional Areas, and the requirements and acquisition processes that work together to produce trained and ready forces for the Combatant Commanders. SFC Swenson was the only NCO in the class and is one of the few NCOs Army-wide who has attended the course.
