Local soldiers get a little more training

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Staff Sgt, Brian Hopfer of Jackson, with Detachment 1, 1137th Military Police Company in Jackson, and Sgt. 1st Class Leo McElrath of Cape Girardeau with the 935th Aviation Support Company in Aurora, Mo., graduated from the Army basic instructor course recently at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. The course is designed to take what officers and noncommissioned officers already know about training soldiers and turn it into structured lesson plans and well-designed classes.
