"I am a Sergeant in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. Last year at this time you provided a block a week long block of instruction at Camp Shelby. I would just like to convey how appreciative I am that you took some time to help prepare us for a deployment. Our Stryker Brigade has recently returned from Iraq. I personally ended up managing several teams of Intelligence personnel. I found your course extremely helpful. I truly believe it was one of the most critical pieces of training that we as intelligence professionals received prior to our deployment. From my personal experience, I would like to say your course was without a doubt a building block for our success!"
"Instructors had real world experience. We need more training like this. Instructors answered all questions. The entire class paid close attention at all times."
"This is an excellent course and should also be taught to all Commanders. A longer and more in-depth course would be more effective."
"Without a doubt, this was the most informative, effective, and useful class I have taken since I joined the military. The instructors were phenomenal, friendly and took the subject matter seriously. My only complaint was that I did not have the opportunity to take the extended course. I hold the course and Instructors in extremely high regard and feel much more prepared for my deployment because of both."
"This is one of the best classes I've attended in my military career. The only complaint I have is it is far too short to be truly effective. It should be a minimum, one month long."
"I thought the training was the best training I've had since I've been at Camp Shelby. The course was well organized. The power points included lots of videos. The instructors did an excellent job at presenting, instructing, and mentoring students. The exercises off base were excellent. I learned a huge amount during that exercise. The facilities provided by the Army were not good at all."
"Very knowledgeable instructors that brought real world experience to enhance the course and they also gave useful constructive criticism to develop skill sets."
"I loved the tools that this course gave me. I think that I will be using these techniques in the field and they will benefit my unit."
