Army Training Command

In 1895, the Training Command emerged alongside the Saranrom Army School, which was founded by Rama V on 5 August 1887, with the goal of training army cadets. After World War II, the training pattern was adjusted to follow the American Military Academy of West Point, and while the Army School was renamed to Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy (fig.) and placed under the direct supervision of the Royal Thai Army, the command section became known as the Inspector General Department, which in 1952 changed its name and status to Army Field Forces, and in 1981 eventually became the Army Training Command. It has been given the responsibilities to facilitate the training of all army units and the education of all military schools, except for that of the Command and General Staff College, and that of the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy. The Army Training Command's motto is: sang thahaan duay kaan feuk sang chon seuk duay kaan seuksah sang phoo bangkhab bancha duay kaan phattana khun tham (สร้างทหารด้วยการฝึก สร้างชนศึกด้วยการศึกษา สร้างผู้บังคับบัญชา ด้วยการพัฒนาคุณธรรม), which freely translates as Building the Army by Training. Building Warriors by Education. Building Commanders by Virtue Development. In Thai, known as Krom Yut Seuksah Thahaan Bok. See also POSTAGE STAMP.
