VICENZA, Italy – Two U.S. Army Africa noncommissioned officers discussed enlisted support to staff operations during a recent familiarization seminar with counterparts from the Botswana Defense Force.
Sgt. 1st Class Gerardo Navarro and Sgt. 1st Class Samuel Boyd, two senior NCOs with experience in supporting staff operations explained NCO roles and outlined what Soldiers learn at the U.S. Army NCO Battle Staff Course. The weeklong event, which wrapped up March 12, was coordinated through the U.S. Embassy in Gaborone.
“We offered our course overview for 19 sergeants and warrant officers from Botswana,” Navarro said. “They would like to implement an NCO staff development course of their own.”
