En Cadre
A cadre (UK: /ˈkɑːdər/ or US: /ˈkædreɪ/) is the complement of commissioned officers and non-commissioned officers of a military unit responsible for training the rest of the unit.[1] The cadre may be the permanent skeleton establishment of a unit, around which the full unit can be built if needed. In countries which have conscription, a cadre may comprise the permanent staff of a regiment who train the conscripts assigned to it. The term comes from the French expression en cadre, with the same meaning.[2][3] In the United States military, a cadre is a group or member of a group of leaders, especially in units that conduct formal training schools.[4] In United States Army
