Soldiers Ready For Readiness Exercise


A gaggle of Fort Riley troopers are getting ready to take part in a readiness train.

In keeping with the Military, the 2nd Armored Brigade Fight Crew, 1st Infantry Division, “Dagger Brigade,” will execute an Emergency Deployment Readiness Train to the Nationwide Coaching Heart, Fort Irwin, California.

“It is a vital coaching occasion for the Dagger Brigade and Fort Riley,” mentioned Brigadier Normal Niave F. Knell, 1st Infantry Division Deputy Commanding Normal – Riley. “No-notice coaching workout routines showcase our Military’s skill to quickly deploy combat-credible forces wherever they’re wanted.”

An EDRE is a no-notice, fast deployment train designed to check a unit’s skill to alert, marshal, and deploy forces and gear to an emergency catastrophe or for contingency operation. An EDRE assessments the deployment readiness of active-component forces – on this case, Dagger Brigade.

“I’m extraordinarily happy with the Dagger Brigade Troopers and I’m positive that they may deal with this mission with the identical professionalism that they’ve at all times demonstrated,” mentioned Knell. “We drastically admire the assist of our Large Pink One households as we transfer out to execute this vital coaching.”

The Dagger Brigade will put together personnel and gear for motion by air and floor transportation, conduct coaching and return to Fort Riley this summer time.
