Reserve engineers train to build under fire
Sgt. Robert Burns, a squad leader with the 718th Engineer Company, moves from speaking with the driver of a scraper to the driver of a grader. Burns was acting as the platoon leader after the actual platoon leader was notionally eliminated in combat with opposing forces. Nearly 5,400 service members from the U.S. Army Reserve Command, U.S. Army, Army National Guard, U.S. Navy, and Canadian Armed Forces are training at Fort Hunter Liggett as part of the 84th Training Command’s CSTX 91-17- 03 and ARMEDCOM’s Global Medic; this is a unique training opportunity that allows U.S. Army Reserve units to train alongside their multicomponent and joint partners as part of the America’s Army Reserve evolution into the most lethal Federal Reserve force in the history of the nation.
