It had been known that the military schools provide an effective way of providing military education and training. In which, discipline is at hand. No wonder that military educational training is quite exhausting regardless on its academic field. Although, it’s quite exhausting but the formation and the learning’s that been got provides a greater venue are very much worthwhile. Most of the military schools that been established here in the United States were usually been enclosed in a boarding system or called as Military Boarding School. It had been observed that those individuals or learners that are enrolled to this type of educational learning system of military boarding institutes come from the family of military soldiers or who have some backgrounds about military aspects. In which, they have transferred their vision to their sons and daughters about the values and the educational aspects that can be gained of military education.

As some point, the military boarding school will also serve as a gateway for some of the learners to continue or forego a higher military education to the military academies for the pursuant of a military career and become a certified military soldier in the country that will serve to defend and fight against any invaders of peace and harmony of the country. Since, military soldiers are been mainly designed to protect the welfare and well being of the people. Just like the case of Lt. Gen. William B. Caldwell in which long before he came from a military boarding school and there he began to learn about the basic of military education and take some basic trainings on it. As the years goes by, he realized that he likes the things that he do in the military boarding school and continue to do by foregoing a military career. With the orientation that he got in his childhood years, it’s not anymore new to him about the basics of military education program and on its training. Although, he already used to it but at some point the stirs or eagerness of wanting to be trained more pushes him to forego more steps for a higher military education in order to become part of the military tasks force in the country. His effort and aspiration to become a real military soldier in order to serve as a protector of peace and welfare of the people provides him a long way. No wonder that he is now one of the commanders in the U.S. Army which leads and provides leadership training to his subordinate.
