O p E x : BAT T LE FI E LD E XE RCI S E TO O L T H E CHALLE N G E The US military has evolved to be the greatest fighting force in history. However, the amount of time and effort required to learn the art and science of warfighting, across the full range of military operations in volatile and dynamic environments, has increased significantly.
