Our Values

Professionalism is our watchword. We speak candidly, but always with respect for each other and our commission. We tackle our leadership challenges with a positive voice, focused solely on building and leading combat-ready teams. We welcome multiple, diverse perspectives on how we can achieve this common purpose. We seek to bring to bear the knowledge, experiences, and character of each experienced platoon leader to serve all current and future generations of platoon leaders.

Why Join the PlatoonLeader Forum?

The documents and conversations in this space are almost entirely by and for us–past, present, and future platoon leaders. The PL Forum ┬áis more than just a resource for platoon leaders; its value comes from platoon leaders connecting with each other and sharing our experiences and hard-earned knowledge. We invite each of you to participate as your time and experiences allow.
