After a reformation of forces in March, 3-414th Regiment (LDAC) has hit the ground running in preparation for their summer training mission at Cadet Summer Training.

Alpha company has focused not only on administrative readiness but has been gearing up for their Cadet Summer Training (CST) mission in Fort Knox, Kentucky. The company has completed new transgender policy training, conducted the Army Physical Fitness Test  and refreshed their first aid and combat casualty care as well as their  individual movement techniques.

For the Bravo company Soldiers of Vancouver, Washington, focus had been on  Chemical, Biological, Radiation, and Nuclear (CBRN) training in preparation for the unit’s Cadet Summer Training mission as well as individual Soldier skills.  The unit completed Basic Rifle Marksmanship (BRM) worked with the Engagement Skills Trainer (EST) system, received training on new transgender policies, and validated their standard medical and administrative readiness.  In addition, Bravo Company conducted the Army Physical Fitness Test in order to measure the company’s physical readiness.

Confident in their abilities and ready to “fight tonight” the Soldiers of 3-414th are headed into CST 2017 to inspire, mentor, train and lead the Cadets who are the future of our Army and our Army Reserve.
