2nd Psychological Operations Group

Incoming Commander of the U.S. Army Reserve's 2nd Psychological Operations Group, Col. James C. Slaughter, receives the guidon from outgoing Commander, Brig. Gen. Andree G. Carter during a virtual change-of-command Nov. 15, 2020, Twinsburg, Ohio.
Command Sgt. Maj. Andrew Lombardo, U.S. Army Reserve Command, speaks about the changes and implementation of the new ACFT 2.0. The U.S. Army challenges all Soldiers to pass the ACFT at the gold standard. The ACFT will strengthen our fitness culture, reduce injuries, and increase Army readiness. COVID19 has had an enormous impact on our nation and on our Soldiers. Leadership has assessed the situation and adjusted our implementation of the ACFT across the force. As a result of that assessment, we now introduce ACFT “2.0,” which will physically prepare us all for combat. ACFT 2.0 is the Army’s continuous effort to assess and evolve the ACFT by reviewing its scoring standards and alternate events. Performance data will continue to inform modifications and updates over the next few years. The Army Reserve will remain open and transparent in our scoring standards. When changes are implemented, we will provide appropriate training guidance in our doctrine. For now, no adverse administrative actions will be taken against a Soldier for failing the ACFT. This guidance is in place at least through 31 March 2022.
Maj. Gen. A.C. Roper, deputy commanding general U.S. Army Reserve, talks about the value of life of every U.S. Army Reserve Soldier and the importance of reflectively listening to the concerns and needs of others.

MISSION 

2d Psychological Operations Group will be manned, trained, and equipped to conduct Military Information Support Operations (MISO) during all operational phases in support of combat operations in order to influence the behavior of selected target audiences (TA) in support of Geographic Combatant Commands (GCC) and their subordinate commands' objectives.

VISION 

The 2d Psychological Operations Group is the most capable, lethal, combat-ready, professional, disciplined, and focused organization in the Army with leaders who care for the unit and their Soldiers as they would their own family – leaders who seek opportunities for long term impact and mentorship, inspiring our Soldiers to become leaders themselves.
