Team Room produces articles that address contemporary issues, highlight best practices, or offer solutions to common issues for those serving on small teams. Submissions should be between 500 - 2,000 words and address diverse range of topics that could include pre-mission training tips, how to get that school you always wanted, advice for new team members, leadership lessons, etc. If the content is relevant to people serving on small teams, we would love to have it!

Why Glocks? Some of our CA units have Glocks in their inventory and many of our CA professionals deploy overseas to operate from a US Embassy where the personal protective weapon issued is a Glock. We are not on either side of the gun debate and we only aim to reward our members with ways to improve their profession. Force protection is always a high priority for our specially trained soldiers, whether at home or abroad.
