Fort Leavenworth, Kansas – The Center for Army Lessons Learned (CALL) deployed a three-person training team to Jinja, Uganda, on Feb. 15-20, 2015, to advise and assist the Ugandan Peoples’ Defense Force (UPDF) in establishing a lessons learned program. The team was hosted by the commandant of the Ugandan Rapid Deployment Capability Center, Major General Francis Okello, to help identify capability gaps in capturing lessons learned and improving unit performance after operations and training. Establishing a lessons learned capability in Uganda was part of a discussion between the UPDF and commander of Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa (CJTF-HOA).
CALL worked closely with the CJTF-HOA liaison officer at the U.S. Embassy in Kampala, Uganda, to develop the content of the instruction and a path for the UPDF to establish its lessons learned center. The UPDF is interested in improving its lessons learned capabilities, specifically focusing on the linkage between its training directorate and higher headquarters, similar to the U.S. Army’s Training and Doctrine Command.
Mission Command Center of Excellence's Mr. Owen McCauley (CALL) and Mr. Jim Benn (CADD) along with members of the Alaskan National Guard conducted a doctrine and lessons learned seminar with the Mongolian Armed Forces 20-28 June 2014. They laid out a "road map" that will lead to establishing their lessons learned and doctrine process.
