L, 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. Brigade Commander Col. Richard E. Supinski Biographical Sketch Education.

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. 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 Bliss.

There It Goes The First Haircut Reception Station Processing -'Q 'V s I oog Qs V F .pn - Clothing Issue 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. Immunizations Battery!Company Assignment Basic Training Begins Basic training begins with the cracking of a drill sergeantls voice - "Fall in" as you arrive at your battery or company area. A quick formation and you answer, "Here, sergeant!" to let him know that youlre really there. 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 your drill sergeant, and I will teach you to become a soldier." You will never forget him. 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 Defense soldier. iw 13' , M 1 9 2 ., 'ma ve Hwy 'U G UE N, ,,,, E M -vm I 5 if 2 r. i 'I 1 f W 3 , 1 fi A d E Aff Drill And 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 formed. The hours spent on the drill field have one purpose, Ceremonies 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. ,J .frm-..,...,... .,,.: .ww - W--L ww- Mg' af, ..

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.

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 together with a sense of spirit and pride in their accomplishments. in o ..-,.M1..M-.M Ms' ,:J.:wwl'zwix2a'm ffC7-"V 1-rf Q -.15 .

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. . . i- Tactical Bivouac ,. ,L Me er Range Here the soldier must become familiar with the Army's basic weapons. Ranging from the M60 machine gun, the Army's light machine gun, to the M18A1 anti-personnel mine. The soldier's ability to recognize the weapons characteristics and their uses may very well play an important role in the future defense of his squad, section, platoon or unit. Some of the best designed weapons in the world, when properly employed, are extremely effective. 1 r 462 in-at Q sf , HH., ,Y fi' 'Q M ,mwemg-My M534 .N-Mem fww Q5 !gW,f?5, 'f'1g'G:x mm K V' 5 .1 +2 f- - gm , nw, SAik55,?Qg vpgg XML H+f1:5Mwg pf 3,3 L W :,g,gQsQf123S:f "MN- Q , z A- g.:s:gQgf'Q'f 'Q f 1 Lg:-xzwaqff V 2 5 5 14 if 6.

The soldier is instructed on battlefield survival by means of many hours of actual field training under simulated combat conditions. Combat Skills 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 if soldier with the tools necessary to function in a combat environment. "' -, .iw ' . ' J ,vs i ,.P" , ' s rv, A . I A I , as ff- . L is?

Q l'f' t' F' ' 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- tions. 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.

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. Recreational Services --.....,,,,m, YMCA Trip One highlight of the soldier's time at Fort Bliss is his first pass.

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 civilian life. Physical Fitness 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.
