48th Volunteers are ready for deployment

Soldiers of the 48th Infantry Brigade’s security forces, prepare for deployment at Camp Shelby Joint Forces Training Center, Miss. Working to bring all the individual task together, the movement, personal security and department of public works teams conduct a key leader engagement training scenario where they had to protect their principle (key leader) from any danger. “When the simulated IED went off, they threw me out of the way and closed in around Keller, acting principle,” explained Dan Browne, contracted observer-controller/trainer. “They made sure he was safe, got him out of here in under 17 seconds and did their job perfectly. I couldn’t ask for better.”
