Resources for the Army

Writing is an essential skill for officership. In an interview on the inaugural Battalion Command Assessment Program (BCAP), which includes an essay assessment, former Army Talent Management Task Force (ATMTF) Director MG Joseph McGee explained: "The officer corps will know that if they want to rise to the level of being a battalion commander, it's important for them to do the preparation and work to improve their ability as a writer. That's going to make our communications clearer and better and it's just going to raise the level of performance across the entire officer corps."

The WPWP supports cadets, NCOs, and officers at all levels during their development as effective communicators.
