TRADOC Military History Programs
Military history activity in TRADOC is carried out in two separate but complementary programs: the Command History Program and the Military History Education Program (MHEP).
The Command History Programs mission is designed to bring the historical dimension to all levels of the TRADOC mission: recruiting, training, and educating the Army's soldiers, developing leaders, supporting training in units, developing doctrine, establishing standards, and building the future Army.
The Command Historians, including the Historians in subordinating organizations, conduct research, preserve a selected collection of historical documents as the institutional memory of the command and advice Commanders on the use of military history in the professional development of leaders. Most Historians in the subordinating organizations CAC (Combined Arms Center), CASCOM (US Army Combined Arms Support Command), and CIMT (U.S. Army Center for Initial Military Traininng), also serve as instructors of military history. And all Historians lead staff rides to historic battlefields.
The TRADOC Military History Education Program involves academic instruction of military history as an integral component of leader development training.
