This training program should be formalized so that we can orderly program for replacements/additional personnel coming into our organization. c. At the suggestion of COL Stern, it was directed that we look at finding other TDA slots to put our personnel against. COL Stern pointed out that there are numerous.TDA slots in the headquarters that are never filled and probably never will be and that if we can put our personnel in those slots then the various staff elements can put in requesition against the ones we are currently filling.
