In recognition of General Gorman’s revolutionary approach to Army training. A supporter of early simulations such as the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System and the Combat Training Centers, General Gorman was later an innovator of networking simulations and the changing paradigm to link live, virtual and constructive simulations. His distinguished career of service to the United States Army has left an indelible mark on modeling and simulation and has resulted in decades of effective training for our Soldiers.
