      Fair enough. However the narrative that the action at Jadotville was part of the curriculum as the US army college emanated from people like this Colonel. WHich when put under scrutiny by the board looking into the non-awarding of medals, failed to produce anything other than the narrative he is parroting here.
      Is it now or was it ever part of the curriculum? NO
      Did students, without direction choose to present it as a post WW2 use of coy in defence? Yes, because there are few other examples outside the US military.

      Its a bit like if you ever visit the Library of Garda College, there are possibly thousands of thesis on Garda transport, garda vehicles, driver training, etc, all provided by student/probationer Gardai in training. Oddly it is also the one subject not covered in the Student Curriculum in the college, but students choose it as a topic they want to cover. Why? Because of the huge volume of source material to work from, now that all your predecessors have provided a map for you in their Thesis.
      I fear the same is the case in the US Army college.
      For now, everything hangs on the CoDF report, still possibly 2 weeks from the Ministers desk.
