More Changes To Basic
« on: March 08, 2019, 17:39:57 »
There isn't enough supervision so the Army wants to add a LT and a Sgt E5 to each basic training platoon to bring down the ratio of 1 to every 14 from the current 20. That's less than what school teachers deal with. Back in the 70's when we had a larger Army each platoon had a SSGT DI as platoon sergeant with an E5 Sgt as assistant and the platoons were larger.
