The United States Army has continued to evolve its combat training to meet emerging world threats. Starting in the late 1980s, the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) started focusing its training philosophy towards a new umbrella concept that incorporated combined arms tactics. The new concept, as outlined in TRADOC Regulation 350-7, sets a new strategy and standard for individual and unit training plans. It identifies resources and helps units design local training events (TRADOC, 1999). After units train locally, they deploy to one of several Army training centers to hone their combat skills in an actual combined arms environment. The new training strategy and centers are central to the Armys goal in preparing units and individual Soldiers for combat.
