Training the trainers

A bonfire lit the sky of Babil Province, as noncommissioned officers

from the 172nd Infantry Brigade welcomed 22 graduates into the ranks of leadership at the first-ever Blackhawk Warrior Leader Course in theater.

The week-long accelerated training program has a focus on over 20

hands-on, performance-based skills ranging from Iraqi security

professionalization to fundamental lifesaving skills. (U.S. Army photo
