Intelligence is one of the most effective weapons the United States Army has against the enemy. Knowing as much as possible about enemy forces as well as your own helps to come up with realistic and effective plans which will protect the lives of your soldiers and make sure every attack will result in success. Reading and understanding the information provided is something which takes skill.
