Abstract : Our history is replete with great leadership which has been demonstrated by men in battle. The United States Army War College has subsequently used these leadership styles as part of its curriculum to expose others to those traits which have proven to be successful. In the majority of instances, leadership examples have tended to be directed toward the combat commander. Little effort has been given, to provide in this curriculm, a wider exposure of leadership styles in the combat service and combat service support specialties. It is therefore a major contention that our curriculm does not offer our students the broadest exposure to leadership styles. This study is intended to do that. Using the Military Railroads as the support function, this project will investigate the leadership associated with this organization. The final outcome will be to demonstrate the need to incorporate leadership styles of support functions into the curriculum of this college.
