Mission Command Conference

18-19 April 2018

The 2018 Mission Command Conference (MCC) examined the challenges and opportunities of mission command from the NCO and junior officer perspective. This year the United States Military Academy First Class Cadets were joined by 102 ROTC students from across the nation. Junior officers and NCOs from seven Forces Command (FORSCOM) units facilitated small group discussions. The highlight was CSM Blaisdell’s Fireside Chat and the Black Hearts panels, where several members of Bravo Company, 1-502 Infantry talked about their experiences, bringing the story to life and providing further context about 1st Platoon's experience.
