    Story by 1st Lt. Michael Marks 

    2d Cavalry Regiment

    The Regimental Support Squadron, 2d Cavalry Regiment began Fiscal Year ‘19 with Dragoon Ready, a 7th Army Training Command/Joint Multinational Readiness Center led exercise designed to enhance readiness and qualify 2CR in Unified Land Operations. Under new leadership and the addition of new Soldiers to the squadron, this exercise will enable them to review, execute and implement techniques, tactics and procedures across the unit.

    Lt. Col. Kevin Harris, commander, RSS, and Command Sgt. Maj. Anthony Jackson, senior enlisted advisor, RSS, stressed the importance of safety for Dragoon Ready. They emphasized the importance of safety during this exercise in order to maintain Soldier and equipment readiness goals in order for the squadron to conduct follow on missions.

    The rehearsal of concept, conducted on Oct. 17, 2018, allowed staff members, key leaders and Soldiers an opportunity to review products from map reconnaissance conducted by the squadron operations officer and key leaders. Presenters were able to share experience gained from previous exercises while operating in the Amberg Training Area throughout the previous year.

    Throughout Dragoon Ready, Soldiers will be tested on their ability to shoot, move and communicate in order to establish and secure the Regimental Support Area.

    Sgt. Jason Bradrich, a 92Y unit supply specialist, is looking forward to establishing fighting positions and pulling security. Having served in an infantry unit since 2014, he thinks the task given for Dragoon Ready will benefit the ability for support Soldiers to conduct support operations in a battlefield setting.

    Over the remainder of the month, the RSS will be tested on setting the base defense in the Amberg Training Area under the observation of the JMRC observer and control team. Troops will be tested on the ability to conduct sustainment operations and Role II while maintaining security across their area of influence.
