Army Spec. Scott M. Grant has completed the warrior leader course as part of the Army’s noncommissioned officer education system.

The 30-day course is designed to provide soldiers who can visualize, describe and execute squad-level operations in varied operational environments and battlefields. Soldiers with the rank of specialist or corporal learn to be noncommissioned officers focused on leading, training, caring, maintaining and warrior skills. The soldiers are prepared for promotion to sergeant to serve as leaders of teams, crews and squads.

Course topics include leadership, training management, map reading, land navigation, drill and ceremony, warfighting and a field training exercise.

Grant, service rifle shooter/instructor, is assigned to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Columbus, Ga. The specialist has served in the military for eight years.

Grant is the son of Charles L. and Colleen F. Landers of Harrison. His wife, Kristine, is the daughter of Charles Darnell of Spring Lake, N.C., and Joanne Darnell of Fayetteville, N.C. Grant graduated from Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School, South Paris, in 1998.
