Abstract:

This study examines the significant training experiences of the 5th Battalion, 21st Infantry, 2d Brigade, 7th Infantry Division Light as it prepared for Joint Readiness Training Center Rotation JRTC 90-1 in October 1989. On December 19, 1989, the unit deployed on Operation JUST CAUSE as the 7th Infantry Division Light Division Ready Force One. The seven battlefield operating systems BOS outlined in U.S. Army Field Manual 25-100 Training the Force, November 1988, serves as the focal point for the units preparation for JRTC and its combat operations during Operation JUST CAUSE. This study can provide light infantry battalion and brigade commanders a broader understanding on how to improve light infantry training.
