The article looks at the transformation of the Initial Entry Training (IET) offered by the U.S. Army in the face of the terrorist attacks. The previous IET program established in the 1980s focused on mass producing Soldiers in the most efficient manner possible. Fort Benning, the proponent for Infantry One Station Unit Training (OSUT), worked closely with Fort Jackson, South Carolina, the proponent for Basic Combat Training (BCT), to transform all IET training. IET trainers completely redesigned the BCT and Infantry OSUT program of instruction (POI).
