I remember the first time I heard the term, I think I was a SSG. I thought, this is kinda silly, isn’t every day SGTs time. Turns out, looking back, SGTs time was a great program. It made you stop, prepare for, and conduct training at a level that previously was overlooked. SGTs time allowed a NCO to look at the training of his people and tailor training for exactly what they needed.
The biggest thing, though, is it made the trainers plan, prepare, and present training to their own Soldiers. This is what forced many leaders to actually become proficient in their tasks so that they could lead their Soldiers.
I remember SGTs time fondly. Task, Conditions, and Standard. Butcher block boards. Demonstrator Post…….
