Abstract : Doctrine and Tactics are fundamental elements of military science. As such, it is absolutely imperative they be suited to the nature of future threats. To ensure this occurs, doctrine and tactics must be balanced between the lessons of history and the creativity and vision of officers and NCOs. This balanced perspective may best be developed through the construction of a creative military culture designed to stimulate creative thinking. This creative culture can develop provided emphasis is placed on educational programs and on the removal of barriers to creative thought in the Department of Defense.
