Michael Getchell (second from left), commander, 4th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division “Raiders”, soldiers from 2nd Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, and Australian army visitors observe an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle landing on an airstrip Feb. 6 here. Australian Chief of Army, Lt. Gen. David Morrison, visited the “Raider” Brigade to observe and discuss SBCT mission command capabilities and collective training with the brigade’s leadership, building a stronger strategic U.S.-Australian Army relationship. The “Raiders” are currently engaged in Exercise Raider Focus, a month-long brigade training exercise designed to challenge the ability of leaders and soldiers to conduct full spectrum operations as a combined arms team.
