Belvoir Eagle: GO/SES course develops Army’s future leaders
Dec 12th 2013
General officers and senior executive service personnel learned to become better leaders during the GO/SES Force Integration Course at the Army Force Management School on Fort Belvoir, Dec. 2-6.
The quarterly course, designed help students understand how the Army operates at a senior level, hosted 31 leaders.

According to Lt. Col. Albert Benson, Jr., deputy commandant of AFMS, students generally do not learn the information taught in the class before assuming their new leadership roles.

“It is an opportunity to be able to hear from the Army’s top leadership about things they have on their desks and what is going on throughout the Army,” Benson said. “Very few people, probably less than 2 percent of all of the people in the Army, have that privilege to hear firsthand, from a very senior level, what is moving and shaking throughout the Army.” read more

BG Roger L. Cloutier Jr., New Commandant of the AFMS!
Oct 15th 2013
Greetings to all Army Force Managers (Active, Guard, Army Reserve, and Civilians)! On 19 August 2013, I assumed responsibilities as the Commandant of the Army Force Management School (AFMS) from MG John M. Murray who is now serving with the Dog Face Soldiers at Fort Stewart as Marne 6. Thanks from all of us for a job well done! Understanding the importance of how the Army runs at all levels is critical to Global Force Management and touches almost everyone, not just Force Managers (FA 50s). It is my goal that each course provides education and training for leaders and Force Managers that is cutting-edge, relevant and actionable to help you meet the demands placed on our Army. I am continuously impressed by our Army Force Managers at all levels, military and civilian. I firmly believe that our Force Managers are strategic leaders and agents of change, superbly educated and trained on “How the Army Runs.” read more
