The Air Defense Artillery Training Brigade traces its
lineage to the lst Air Defense Guided Missile Brigade
CTrainingJ which was formed in July 1963. During the
past three decades this brigade has been responsible
for the MOS' training of Air Defense soldiers who
deploy to units worldwide. On 6 July 1976, the lst
ADA Training Brigade assumed the additional
responsibility for conducting basic training, as well as
MOS operator training for all enlistees in the Air
Defense field. In this configuration, the brigade
consisted of two MOS training battalions and two for
basic training, in addition to the Headquarters
Battery, Committee Group and the US Army
Reception Station. Although not a part of the formal
brigade organization, the US Army Reception Station
is under the brigade's command and control and is
responsible for processing enlistees at Fort Bliss. On
9 February 1979, the 1st ADA Training Brigade began
to provisionally implement a One Station Unit
Training COSUTJ concept which allows the soldier to
receive his basic and MOS training in one unit during
a 14 week training cycle. At the same time women
were integrated into training. Eachof the two training
battalions consisted of seven batteries which were
supported by an Instructor Group. On 1 October 1982
the Brigade again assumed the Basic Training mission
and reformed into three training battalions - two
OSUT and one BT. Its current primary mission is to
train soldiers under the OSUT concept with the
additional mission of basic training.

This is the gateway to the Army. How do they get
everything accomplished here? This may be one of
the thoughts that occurs to the soldiers as they
process through the Fort Bliss Reception Station. It
becomes quite clear to them they do get a great deal
accomplished during the brief three days' stay.
Aptitude test, dogtags and identification cards,
orientation meeting, a clothing issue and the creation
of a permanent file - all are completed within the
few days of processing at the Reception Station.
The change from civilian to soldier has to be a swift
one for during the next few weeks they will receive
intensive training in the fundamentals of combat
soldiering that may have to be applied in the defense
of our country and their own lives.
The beginning of a new career, new challenges, and
life-long friendships becomes a reality as each day
passes. Even as the soldiers move to their training
companies or batteries, they have begun to
understand a little more of the routine that will
become such an important part of their stay at Fort

n The First Da
On the first day of processing, the trainee is given an
orientation concerning what military clothing will be
issued and the care of the clothing. The new soldier is
measured and fitted for over 515300.00 worth of new
clothing and footwear by clothing fitters with many
years of experience. in tailoring and fitting military
clothing. When he leaves the Clothing Initial Issue
Point, he has clothing for any climate that will enable
him to be one of the world's best dressed soldiers.

"Here, sergeant!" to let him know that youlre really
An unfamiliar face approaches while you stand in
formation. He does not smile, but he has an air of
authority, confidence and professionalism in his walk
and manner. He stops in front of you and gazes over
the entire platoon formation. His eyes show not a trace
of emotion, and as they pierce you, you realize he is
your drill sergeant. He introduces himself with, "I am

One Station Unit Training CGSUTJ
One Station Unit Training COSUTJ combines the basic
skills of soldiering with concentrated training on the
skills necessary to qualify the air defender on the
weapon system for which hefshe enlisted.
Throughout the first six weeks of the cycle, the trainee
is progressively exposed to the physical conditioning
process, taught the fundamentals of soldiering,
qualified with the M16 rifle and instructed in combat
indoctrination. During this phase of training, the
trainee is also oriented on the weaponry of air defense.
For the final eight weeks each trainee pursues
specialized training in the specific Air Defense weapons
system chosen and upon successful completion of the
fourteen week cycle is graduated as a qualified Air

Sharp commands echo across the drill field and
marching feet beat a tattoo across the grounds. Another
order sounds and dozens of rifles snap in unison. These
are the sounds of instruction, dismounted drill as old
as organized armies and from which discipline itself is
The hours spent on the drill field have one purpose,
to develop in the soldier an instinct for precision, an
ingrained habit of obedience to command and a sense
of teamwork. They learn individual, squad, platoon,
company drill and the manual of arms.
During training they acquire habits which provide the
foundation for discipline, alertness and quick response.

Learning the duties of a sentinel is important to the
soldiers so they can properly perform their responsibili-
ties and appreciate their general orders. Though these
duties are fundamental, guarding a supply area or a
weapons site is equally important. Standing guard-
mount insures the soldier is knowledgeable of his duties
and the proper equipment is available to perform the
tour of duty.

The confidence course helps to develop team work,
build spirit and instill a high degree of selfconfidence.
Negotiating obstacles of great height that require
considerable physical strength is challenging. Though i
demanding both physically and mentally, the con- p
fidence course is a great team and spirit builder. This
test of physical endurance is made easier because your
buddy helps give encouragement when you need it
most. Teamwork helps to build units that operate

Trainees live at Meyer Range in GP medium tents
during their fourth week of training. Qualification with
the M-16 rifle, consisting of prescribed day and night
firing phases, is one of the most important factors in
the training. During the fifth week at Meyer Range, the
trainee continues his training living in two-man pup
tents. Training includes live hand grenade throws, the
M-60 machine gun, Claymore Mine and M203 grenade
launcher training, hand grenade assault course, fire
maneuver and defensive courses.

Training is conducted to teach the soldier how to
survive in a combat condition. He is taught how to
negotiate all kinds of terrain and how to move when
under fire. The soldier is instructed on battlefield
survival by means of many hours of actual field training
under simulated combat conditions.
As the name implies these learned skills enable the
soldiers to survive and perform his mission in combat.
Although basic, they serve as the foundation for the
soldier and his future unit to build upon to insure
success in combat. Team work and alertness provide the
soldier with the tools necessary to function in a combat

The development of the soldier's skills in the
use of the Army's individual weapon depend
entirely on the soldier's ability to apply the
basic markmanship skills and principles taught
and reinforced by the Drill Sergeant.
Q l'f' t'
The 25-meter range stressed the fundamentals
of rifle firing, grounding the soldier in the basic
skills of sighting and aiming. In Field Firing,
soldiers encounter more complicated condi-
They learn different firing positions. They
encounter the "pop-up" target - the dark
silhouette which will become the measure of
their firing skill.
Placed at distances from 50 to 300 meters, the
targets are centrally controlled to appear and
disappear in varied times and sequences.
As the training progresses, it becomes more
difficultg the soldier at first knows the target
sequenceg later he deals with "surprise" targets.
The targets are "ki1lable" - when hit by a
bullet, they fall automatically.
This system adds interest and realism to the
training and gives the soldier instant evidence
of firing accuracy.
It is the culmination of many hard hours of
training and reinforcement. An exercise
designed to test the soldier's ability to apply all
previously taught skills and principles and
engage targets effectively at various ranges.
Depending on the number of targets scored as
hits, the soldier is designated a sharpshooter,
marksman or expert as indicated below.
23-29 Target Hits ........................... Marksman
30-35 Target Hits ...................... Sharpshooter
36-40 Target Hits .................................. Expert

A phrase seldom heard by soldiers in training. The
tremendous amount of work necessary to complete
basic training requires constant reinforcement and
attention to detail. This leaves little time for freedom.
When it comes, however, it is certainly welcome.
One highlight of the soldier's time at Fort Bliss is his
first pass. To begin this day, the Armed Services YMCA
conducts a guided tour to acquaint the soldier with
services available on post and in the surrounding El
onthly Awards Ceremony
The 1st ADA Training Brigade realizes the importance of
recognizing deserving service members. In order to do this, a
monthly awards ceremony is held at the Brigade Parade Field,
which includes the presentation of awards and a Pass in Review.

Soldiers must be versatile and self-reliant. In
the clamor of battle, at a distance from
complete medical facilities, a life can depend
upon their knowledge of first aid.
Through lectures, demonstrations and practical
exercises, the trainees become experts in first
aid. They learn to deal with splints, ties and
bandagesg to give emergency treatment in case
of shock, bleeding, fractures, snake or insect
bites and drowning. They acquire skills which
will prove valuable both in the Army and in
Physical Fitness Training develops the trainee's strength,
endurance, basic physical skills, confidence, aggressiveness, and
teamwork. Drill Sergeants are responsible for training and
leading individual platoons. Exercises are progressive with
trainees required to do more as physical condition improves.
The training also includes speed marches at Meyer Range and
a conditioning obstacle course at Logan Heights. Trainees are
tested in their seventh week of training on push-ups, bent leg
sit-ups and the two mile run. In order to meet minimum
acceptable standards, the trainee must complete all three
events, achieve a minimum of 60 points in each event and a
cumulative score of 180 points or more for all three events.
