The adaptability exercise is one example of the many uses for the AWTC, which was built to enhance the AWG's mission of identifying capability gaps and providing rapid solution development within various complex operational environments. Adaptability and resiliency is one of the U.S. Army's major initiatives in developing its leaders.
  • U.S. Army soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division conduct an Emergency Deployment Readiness Exercise at the Asymmetric Warfare Training Center's Urban Complex Feb. 24-26, at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. Part of the EDRE took place within the confines of an embassy-like building at the AWTC in order to make the exercise scenario as realistic as possible. The EDRE, a training scenario that requires the Paratroopers to assemble and be ready to deploy anywhere in the world at a moment's notice, is one example of the many operational uses for the AWTC.
  • Soldiers from the 25th Infantry Division participate in an adaptability practical exercise using an obstacle course during the Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program hosted at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. AWALP provides soldiers with a set of core competencies that are essential to being fully prepared to operate in complex and ambiguous environments. Usually hosted at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., members of the AWG brought the AWALP to the 25th Infantry Division to assist in developing an adaptive leader program for incorporation into their Lightening Academy.
