Army Reserve Soldiers and Marine Corps Reserve participate in River Assault 19
The 74th Multi-Role Bridge Company (MRBC), 62nd Engineer Battalion, construct a floating collapsible system of barges called an Improved Ribbon Bridge (IRB) on Belton Lake, at Ft. Hood, Texas, in support of the culminating exercise of River Assault 19 on July 23, 2019. The IRB is a floating, collapsible system of barges that can be used as a full span bridge or to ferry vehicles and equipment across a body of water. The 74th based at Ft. Hood, Texas, alongside U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers from the 361st and 341st MRBC, 420th Engineer Brigade, in Bryan, Texas, worked together to build a floating bridge during River Assault 19. The exercise is a key U.S. Army Reserve training exercise that is intended for engineers and enablers to conduct specific training to increase readiness, enhance partnership and gain interoperability with multi-component and multi-service elements.
