    First Army strengthens Active Duty and Reserve Component partnership during CSTX 91-19-01



    Story by Sgt. William Brown 

    First Army

    When people first hear that they are going to California they think of Hollywood and beaches. When a Soldier hears that they are going to California it’s less about the allure of the big cities and more about good Army training.

    91st Training Division in partnership with 4th Cavalry Multi-Functional Training Brigade along with their other training partners converged on Fort Hunter Liggett for their annual Combat Support Training Exercise 91-19-01. The three week long exercise is intended to assist with planing, preparing , supervising and execution of their pre-mobilization collective training.

    We have an enduring partner with the 208th TC here out of Marana, Arizona near Tuscan and that means I really have an opportunity to talk to them all the time. So, I just happen to be in the field assessing them and evaluating them, but when we leave the field this relationship doesn’t end.

    Through mentoring, observing and coaching, the observer, coach, trainers or OC/T’s of First Army Division East strengthen their partnership with their Reserve Component partners. The OC/Ts were not only there to observe, mentor and coach; they are also uniquely qualified to conduct an after action review that is critical to the units current and future mission success.

    Soundbite CW4 Chad Bartlett - 3-409th Brigade Support Battalion senior OC/T
    When they go out on a mission we will go with them, track their movements, watch them for safety and basically: one make sure that they are being safe, two that they are doing the mission in accordance with regulations, FMs, ARs and then give them feedback at the end. So, they can know what they did well, to sustain and what they need to improve on after the mission is over. When you hit these training events, keep training hard and keep striving to be technically and tactically proficient.
