The Army is in a much better place, as can be seen by our brigade combat team (BCT
) readiness levels.
If the S-2X and supporting staff fail to plan accordingly, their contribution to the BCTs
' mission will be severely degraded.
THE FIVE BCTS
WERE COMMANDED BY OUTSTANDING OFFICERS, NAMELY: COLONEL MARIANO AZURIN THEN COLONEL DIONISIO OJEDA, 10TH BCT
; COLONEL SALVADOR ABCEDE, 20TH BCT
; COLONEL RAMON AGUIRRE, 19TH BCT

Study participants underwent phlebotomy of up to 40 mL of blood into a syringe, which was then redistributed into 8 BCTs
. Four types of BCTs
were used: cell-free DNA (CfDNA; Cat No.
Despite several historical examples of Army expansion since World War II, doubling the number of BCTs

Liquid biopsy tests company Biocept Inc (NASDAQ:BIOC) reported on Monday the launch of an exclusive global agreement, excluding China, for the distribution of its proprietary blood collection tubes (BCTs

The reduction in end strength since 2012 has had a disproportionate effect on the number of BCTs
the Army maintains.
A brigade CTC rotation is seen within the force as a necessary training step, but under the Army's plans for 2015--the FY15 Contingency Force Model--only 24 of 60 BCTs
were to receive CTC or home-station training.
At the JRTC the most successful units begin this collaborative planning process during the BCTs
Leadership Training Program and continue through rotation.
