Maj. Gen. Eric J. Wesley, commanding general of the Maneuver Center of Excellence, kicks off the 2016 Maneuver Warfighter Conference Sept. 14. The #ManWarCon is an opportunity for the Maneuver Center to provide a comprehensive forum (active duty, National Guard, Reserve, civilian, contractor, retired military, special operations, joint, and multi-national) to address current and future issues affecting the warfighting capability, training, and lethality of the maneuver force. This forum is comprised primarily of supported operational forces (Corps, Divisions and BCTs) and the supporting institutional centers and schools, complemented with materiel, combat and training development agencies.
The conference goes through Sept. 16 and presentations will be delivered throughout the week, focusing on issues affecting the Army, particularly maneuver forces.
