Joint Base Meyer-Henderson Hall

U.S. ArmyArlington, VA – While many Americans know December 7th, 2012, as the 71st anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, few are familiar with the role General George Patton played in foreshadowing it.

The Japanese Empire had been on the move in the Orient since its defeat of Russia in 1904 at Port Arthur, Manchuria. Next came the conquest of Korea, to be followed in World War I by the annexation of most of the German colonies in the Pacific; the Carolines, Gilberts, Marianas island groups, plus the German colony on the Chinese coast at Tsaingtao.

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionRakkasanFort Campbell, KY – When preparing for deployments, most soldiers are afforded the opportunity to train over several months to learn mission-essential skills such as tactical movements, team live-fire exercises and counter-explosive device tactics.

Late-deploying soldiers, however, obtain the knowledge necessary for deployment through an Individual Readiness Training (IRT) course. This shortened, comprehensive training program ensures that they have a similar training experience as everyone else.

The range gives Soldiers the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the weapon system for Individual Readiness Training in preparation for a deployment to Afghanistan.
