Quotes
“Mental Skills Training is extremely important to today’s Army. We need to inculcate it into our culture; broadly to the Soldiers and their families…. Peak Performance is not a destination; it is a constant in life. We need to get good at it by applying these principles to the whole unit and the Army as a culture. This needs to be part of our everyday lives.”
GEN Peter J. Schoomaker
Army Chief of Staff
“It profits an Army nothing to build the body of the Soldier to a gladiatorial physique if he continues to think with the brain of a malingerer.”
S.L.A. Marshall
WWII
“Performance Enhancement is the science behind the art of leadership. I have been emphasizing mental preparation for over 10 years, and now the Army has a program that teaches this science.“
MG William G. Webster
Commander, 3ID
