The Tactical Leader

By The Cove September 10, 2019

The Tactical Leader is a community of practice for military professionals interested in the study and practice of war at the tactical level.

It began as the Irwin Drink and Think, a community of practice for tactical leaders at the National Training Center. Meeting monthly to drink beer and talk tactics, they benefited from deep thought and conversation on the art and science of our craft and decided to broaden the discussion to benefit all tactical leaders.

They invite all tactical professionals to join them and promote the study of the tactical level of war.
