Irregular Warfare Group Training
All logistic support (latrines, bus, LRC, and vehicle requests) went according to plan during the three-day training period. The interaction with the local law enforcement in Hyde Park (Police, Sheriff, and Mills-Norrie Park Rangers) was impressive. The USMA reputation and credibility were greatly enhanced by this training exercise. The Cadets endured cold, complex decision making in an ambiguous environment, and simulated moral, ethical, legal, and safety problems. The training was Cadet let and executed. The OIC and NCOIC helped to plan and coordinate the training with the local authorities and citizens to develop a real-world irregular warfare training environment. Three Cadets independently stated this was the best training they have received while at USMA. This exercise is the cornerstone and all training that occurs throughout the year leads up to this event.
