Feedback from the field:
“My time with the Infantry Tactics Club at West Point provided me with a solid foundation in both individual and collective infantry tasks. My confidence level with leading infantry units up to the platoon level greatly benefited from my time with the club: from understanding doctrine to something as simple but often overlooked as properly supervising rehearsals, the club prepared me more than adequately for the Infantry Basic Officer Leader Course.”

"I'm glad Cadets are sticking with ITC. I am 1SG in a Infantry Reconnaissance Company but we are pretty much a Rifle Company. We just returned from the field, fininshing off Team Live Fires-just like you guys are doing. Even though 2/3 of these Soldiers saw combat in Ramadi, Iraq- we still worked on the basics. IMT, magazine drills, SAW drum change, TL fire commands, marksmanship, consolidate and reorganize, reporting, CASEVAC. Nothing cute. The TM LFX you are doing- you will see again as a PL-guaranteed. You guys are on the right track- keep it up."
