John Kroger, newly appointed chief learning officer at the Department of the Navy, seeks to establish a force of thinkers and has been working with officials to organize DON's education system, USNI News reported Monday.

As CLO, he carries the task to organize the United States Naval Academy, the future Naval Community College, Marine Corps University and other academic institutions within DON.

“If we don’t outthink people, we can’t outfight them,” Kroger told USNI News.

Kroger said sailors and marines must be educated to keep up with the growing complexities of weapon technologies.

He also noted the use of distance learning to educate warfighters even during frontline service. Kroger said he seeks a system that allows sailors and marines to undergo sustained learning without having to withdraw from active duty.
