The Army is eliminating online training programs and a leave planning requirement as part of a broader push to reduce tasks that take away from time spent on combat readiness.
Army Secretary Mark Esper ended three online mandates this month: media awareness, combatting trafficking in persons and the accident avoidance course. He also lifted several requirements related to unit safety programs and inspections.
