The author reflects on an article by Colonel Brian Hanley that was published in the December 2006 issue, and states that his article fails to make clear that the Joint Forces Staff College (JFSC) in the U.S. fulfils requirements different from other Joint Professional Military Education (JPME) schools. He says that the college offers Joint and Combined Warfighting Course, and he cannot understand why Hanley wants to create at the JFSC what already is there elsewhere.
