Army Training

The Army has a non-negotiable contract with the American public to fight and win the nation's wars and to defend its borders. In order
to carry out this responsibility in a complex operational
environment, the Army must train as it fights.

This means that we must teach our Soldiers the tactics, techniques, and
procedures that they will face on the battlefield and we must ensure that our Soldiers practice these skills in an environment that replicates in real-time and real-distance, the challenges of combat. Realistic training leads to survivability on the battlefield. We live in a world of ever changing threats. Therefore, the Army must transform to meet these new challenges and continue to provide our Soldiers with the realistic training they deserve.

Army Training Transformation:
How and Why?

The Global War on Terrorism has resulted in the need for weapons systems with greater capability and longer range, and units that can be rapidly deployed and maneuver over great distances to achieve their objectives. Therefore, the Army is transforming, creating modular forces, and creating future combat systems.

Army Transformation – In 1999, the Army began transforming into the Army Modular Force (AMF) to ensure the Army is ready to support ongoing operations in the Global War on Terror as well as defend against future threats that emerge.

The AMF transformation initiative to restructure combat brigades into self-sufficient and standardized brigade combat teams and to increase the total number of combat brigades in the Army provides an operation Army that is more powerful, flexible and quickly deployable.

The AMF allows the Army to continue its transformation to a battle ready force with joint and expeditionary capabilities that meet future demands on the Army and its Soldiers.
