Education is the keystone of the moral and mental development of the military officer, and he probably has a greater variety of educational opportunities than those in most other professions. These opportunities range from the broad experience of world travel to the narrow confines of advanced technology. As a result, the military officer is in an enviable position. He can "write his own educational ticket." He can specialize or generalize, but learn he must.
