Normally a 10-day program held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., the AWG condensed AWALP into a four day program and sent out a mobile team to the brigade in order to bring adaptability to Army "school house" instructors and training planners. The program, which focuses on building an adaptive force, is an example of the Army's larger initiative of instituting the 21st Century Soldier Competencies. (U.S. Army photo by Lt. Col.

  • Soldiers from the 197th Infantry Brigade participate in an adaptability practical exercise using an obstacle course during the U.S. Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program, hosted at Fort Benning, Ga. Members of the AWG incorporated the obstacle course into the adaptive training scenario in order to demonstrate that a training facility, such as an obstacle course that is resident to most military installations, can be used to accomplish multiple training objectives such as improving problem solving and critical thinking skills. AWALP is a 10-day resident program currently held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. A condensed version was also created in order to assist units with developing their own programs at their home-station.

  • Soldiers from the 197th Infantry Brigade participate in an adaptability practical exercise using and obstacle course during the U.S. Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program hosted at Fort Benning, Ga. Since obstacle courses are resident to most Army installations, members of the AWG used this training facility as an example for Fort Benning "school house" instructors, who participated in AWALP, to demonstrate how adaptability can be incorporated into training, while simultaneously invoking intangible attributes such as critical thinking, and building Soldiers' confidence.

  • U.S. Army soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division negotiate a wall obstacle at a school-like structure at the Asymmetric Warfare Training Center's Urban Complex while participating in an adaptability exercise hosted by the Asymmetric Warfare Group on March 1 at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. 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.
