When members of the 2nd Bn, 503rd Infantry (Airborne) working to help the locals take control of the security environment in Kunnar Province in Afghanistan noted that the local police, national police, and national army didn’t really like working together, they came up with a simple solution. The Americans were conducting training programs for each of the three groups–so they merged them. The first to merge was the training for sergeants (non-commissioned officers). I’m sure it’s not perfect, but it’s a major step in the right direction. Way to go, 503d!
