Toward Nuclear and WMD Fluency in Professional Military Education

As the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s designated focal point for WMD education in Joint Professional Military Education, CSWMD convened its first WMD Educators Forum in April 2021 to provide a venue for dialogue and serve as an accelerator for teaching methods and learning outcomes for WMD across the DoD.  This article is one of the first products of this effort.  I encourage you to read what Mr. Paul Bernstein and Dr. Amy Nelson have written on the Chairman’s latest PME guidance and the implications for developing curricula.  The article draws on recent experience in creating benchmarks for education on nuclear capabilities and concepts, and suggests how this can be done for other critical aspects of the WMD challenge.
