We will interview Maj. Gen. David Hogg, deputy commander-Army, NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan, who will discuss the Professional Military Education (PME) within the Afghan National Army. The Afghan Army, in conjunction with NTM-A partnered nations, is currently executing PME from non-commissioned officer to field grade officer level.
