NSC ‘Greening’ Program Gives Engineers A Soldiers-Eye View
The Natick Soldier Center (NSC) Greening Program is designed to give scientists and engineers with no military experience a better understanding of U.S. Army culture and the soldier’s daily experience, so that they can apply that knowledge on the job. Participants usually receive a one-day orientation course before becoming involved in a week of basic combat training, and the efforts are typically coordinated with units conducting field training exercises. The group breaks away periodically from the controlled schedule to review what they’ve learned. Interested individuals are invited to contact the NSC.
