    On the road again the next day, the column of vehicles drives south to the training area.
    The second day of field training begins along the same lines as day one. To keep soldiers alert, Scout Instructors from the 1-204th Regional Training Institute create changes by mid morning to evaluate the soldiers ability to adapt to changing conditions.

    The purpose of the course is to strengthen critical and creative decision making skills in tactical operations. Most of the work on day two is done from the inside of Humvees. There are a few exceptions when soldiers consult with each other or make observations of the landscape on the Orchard Combat Training Center. The OCTC is a 143,000 acre training area located 18 miles south of Boise and just north of Mt. Home. It is a challenging geographical and environmental landscape for troops and organizations.

    Thirty-two active duty and National Guard soldiers completed the Cavalry Scout Advanced Leadership Course at Gowen Field in Boise. The Idaho Army National Guards’ 1-204th Regional Training Institute offers ground maneuver warfare, maintenance education training in cavalry scout (19D) and M1 armor crewman (19K) military occupational specialties as well as the Advance Leader Course for both MOSs and the commander certification courses for the Bradley Fighting Vehicle and the M1A1/2 Abrams main battle tank.
