Increase awareness of electronic warfare capabilities

I deal with frequency management and communications as an electronic warfare noncommissioned officer and the school's S-3 operations NCO. I have a total of six years and nine months of service time including two deployments under my belt.

I believe that the Army has done a great job providing an institution where Soldiers in my MOS receive detailed familiarization with what is required of us to perform our duties. However, with the 29E MOS being new to the Army, it is not always used to full capacity. If I had to change anything, it would be to increase awareness of our electronic warfare capabilities across the Army so we can contribute more to the fight.
