My hat is off to you two lucky retirees.
Guntoter, are you familiar with the small arms master gunner course up at Camp Robinson, AR? SAMGC. That seems to be where FORSCOM likes to send people lately.
I'm with you on the maintenance programs being too lax in some commands. When I was a drill sergeant, the training tempo was so heavy that we'd draw M16's from the pool in Jan and wouldn't have opportunity to get more than a handful back to 30-level maint until the following Dec. The result was weapons getting Code-P like crazy and sometimes catastrophic bolt failures etc etc. Maneuver units I'm happy to say, as opposed to TRADOC etc, are typically better as far as I know. More specialized units of course don't have that problem at all, ever.
If you have a ton of relevant experience, and it sounds like you do, I'd recommend if you want to share, contact the Center for Army Lessons Learned (CALL). (913) 684-3035 / 2255 or DSN 552-3035 / 2255

Those dudes are always producing new publications and I believe looking for subject matter experts.
