Fort Campbell, KY – The range comes on the heels of their recent Joint Regional Training Center mission as opposing forces.
“The training up to this event was pretty in-depth,” said 2nd Lt. Josh Hartwell, a native of Crete, Nebraska, and the officer-in-charge of the squad live-fire range. “After returning from JRTC we got right after it again with a team live-fire and now with the squad live-fire.”
The range integrated the crawl-walk-run methodology by starting with a blank-fire during the day, followed by an after action review. The soldiers then rehearsed their hand and arm signals, and their patrolling tactics more and went through the range again as a live-fire.

Fort 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.
