The Soldiers of the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division are set to conduct a 10-day combined arms live fire exercise Nov. 1-10.
The objective of the training is to exercise company commanders’ abilities to plan, integrate and control critical enablers into their mounted and dismounted maneuver operations.
The purpose of this type of training is to stress company commanders demonstrating proficiency in direct and indirect fire planning, rehearsals, back briefs, and execution of combined arms operations. Company commanders will become confident in troop leading procedures, mounted and dismounted maneuver, as well as, planning and integration of combat enablers such as combat observation lasing teams.
The Soldiers are conducting the training in order to provide them with pertinent realistic training to prepare them for possible contingency operations.
