Sergeant Philip Noble, the assistant gunner and training non-commissioned officer for Regimental Combat Team 7, is responsible for coordinating Reset, Staging, Onward movement and Integration for all coalition forces that arrive in Helmand province. Noble, a 32-year-old native of Corsicana, Texas, recently received an award from International Security Assistance Forces Joint Command, the second highest command in Afghanistan, for being “the foremost authority on training and RSO&I in Afghanistan.” He has deployed 4 times to Iraq and twice to Afghanistan.
Editor's Note: Reset, Staging, Onward movement, and Integration is the initial process each coalition force unit must go through upon arrival in Afghanistan. It includes refresher-training courses, live-fire ranges, counter improvised explosive device training and movement to the unit’s area of operation.
