Welcome to MilSuite Monday
Each Monday SMTC will post information related to The SMTC MilSuite group. Currently, these post are designed to bring the Recruiting and Retention Force information about the SMTC MilSuite page, introduce additional MilSuite groups that may add value to your recruiting practices, highlight and introduce changes made through the Strength Maintenance (SM) Doctrine and Publication Cell, and to provide an overview of what is available at The SMTC MilSuite site along with how to best utilize specific features. We will use feedback provided through the comment section provided here as we look at future ideas and topics for MilSuite Monday.
The Strength Maintenance Training Center MilSuite page went live in September 2018 reaching 775 members and 789 followers on 1 March 2019. The SMTC MilSuite page houses all SMTC training event and course announcements as well as student welcome letters and upcoming course information.
The intent of SM Doctrine and Publications Cell is to work with the Branches within HRR, as well as the Recruiting and Retention Force, to ensure the ARNG production recruiters are operating with the most current and up to date tools to assist with meeting the end strength goals for the FY. In addition, the SM Doctrine and Publications Cell works closely with the SMTC training developers to ensure training developed incorporates current TTPs and Lessons Learned. It is very important to provide students with the necessary tools to assist them with their assigned mission(s). This extends to making the information available for reach back after graduation.
