“We are one team, one fight,” Gabram told the aviators, who travelled from units around the world to attend the two-day AMCOM 101 for Aviation at Redstone Arsenal. “No other branch has this kind of event. It’s something that benefits the aviation branch and the Army.”

AMCOM 101 for Aviation brings together aviators from across the Army aviation enterprise to learn about the sustainment capabilities of AMCOM, and to discuss aviation challenges and solutions.

Written by Dave Larsen
III Corps and Fort Hood Public Affairs

U.S. ArmyFort Hood, TX – More than 5,500 service members and civilians are taking part in the Army’s first corps-level, full-spectrum unified land operations training exercise in 10 years, at Fort Hood.

The III Corps Warfighter Exercise, which began June 11th, is designed to exercise III Corps’ mission command functions and systems and help set the conditions for the execution of future operations.

“It ranges from anything from peacekeeping all the way to major combat operations,” said Col. Todd Buchs, III Corps operations officer. “The last ten years, we’ve been fighting counterinsurgency-centric, stability operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Unified land operations entail fighting in those different environments simultaneously.”
