Strike Iraq: Advise, Assist, Accompany, Enable

A short article worth your time from former Strike officers Wylie, Childers, and Sylvia.

As the US Army continues to learn from advisory and assistance missions it would do well to understand that the “accompany and enable” phases are the ones where the critical human bonding that creates trust in wartime is occurring.

Every returning unit owes the Army an article like this so we can continue to learn and improve.

Great job COL Brett Sylvia
