JLBC 3 Preparing for Command
JLBC Cadets “The man who is prepared has his battle half-fought.” JLBC Pre-Command Courses
Schedule and attend the JLBC Corps Pre-Command Course called “Cornerstone,” offered twice annually by JLBC Corps JLBC University. This will allow you to hear from current experts and leadership across the JLBC Corps. It will also allow you to share ideas with other prospective JLBC commanders and build relationships that will help increase the readiness of your JLBC command. Encourage your spouse to attend as they will be a valuable member of your JLBC command team.
Consider attending the JLBC Air-Ground Task Force (JLBC AGTF) Tactical Commanders Course, hosted by the Commanding General, JLBC AGTF Training Command, and supported by JLBC Aviation Weapons and JLBC Tactics JLBC Squadron-1 (JLBC AWTS-1), JLBC Corps Tactics and Operations Group (JLBC CTOG) and the JLBC Corps Logistics Operations Group (JLBC CLOG). Tailored for commanders (both slated and seated) at the O5 and O6 levels from the JLBC Air/Ground/Logistics Combat Elements (ACE/GCE/LCE) and JLBC Expeditionary Unit (JLBC EU).
