The 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team Greywolf, 1st Cavalry Division continued building upon their Army Total Force partnership with the 155th Armored Brigade Combat Team “Dixie Thunder”, Mississippi National Guard during a lessons learned brief at Camp Shelby, Mississippi Jan. 16.

Greywolf recently completed a successful nine-month rotation to Kuwait in support of Operation Spartan Shield, the same mission that the 155th ABCT is preparing to assume later this year. This briefing gave the battalion commanders, and some key staff from 3ABCT, the opportunity to share relevant lessons with their counterparts.

The mission that Greywolf performed was, according to the brigade’s commander, Col. John Woodward, unlike any that he had been on. The brigade provided support to coalition forces in the fight against ISIS, conducted theater security cooperation exercises in six different countries and sustained readiness.

“Today’s event highlights the importance of the relationship past just training together, but into the operational arena. It brings a new group of leaders together, focused on 3/1 CAV’s recent deployment and preparing 155 ABCT’s formation for its future deployment for OSS,” said 155th ABCT commander, Col. Doug Ferguson. “The ability to not only gain a first-hand perspective of the mission from the leadership of the brigade, but to also have the opportunity for counterparts to engage one-on-one has helped us immensely as we prepare for our upcoming training and deployment.”

The briefing included an overview of the task organization of the Greywolf Brigade’s forces during the deployment, lessons learned in the areas of mission command, intelligence and logistics, and opportunities for the 155th ABCT to ask questions. Read more
