The Brigade Combat Team: Readying for Large Scale Combat (LSCO)

The Maneuver Center of Excellence will conduct the 2019 Maneuver Warfighter Conference September 10-12, 2019 at Fort Benning, Georgia. Command Sergeant Major Celestine and I are honored to invite you to attend this year's conference entitled "The Brigade Combat Team: Readying for Large Scale Combat (LSCO)".

The purpose of this year's conference is to focus on how we train fundamental individual Soldier and collective skills and prepare the Maneuver Force for the future. Additionally, we will discuss the challenges with Soldier and squad modernization during breakout sessions. Each day of the 3-day conference will build upon the previous and ultimately provide an azimuth to sharpen our Maneuver Force for the future. We will review the Operational Environment, TRADOC and FORSCOM priorities, and benefit from Division and Brigade Senior Leader discussion panels. The Warrior Corners are productive breakout sessions where leaders from various organizations and perspectives describe challenges and outline changes for future training.

One Force, One Fight!
