Abstract : This is a Desert Storm Personal Experience Monograph. Operation Team Builder, executed by the 589th Engineer Battalion (commanded at the time by the author) at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, in January 1991, entailed the formation, specialized training (focusing on mechanized combat engineer mobility support during offensive actions), and deployment to Southwest Asia of five combat engineer package platoons. Key aspects of Operation Team Builder are addressed, including formulation and resourcing of the training plan, assimilation of platoon cadre and members, conduct of training, logistical and personnel challenges, and deployment activities. Selected observations and lessons learned applicable at Department of the Army-level are presented.
