In accordance with First Army's mission, First Army Division East Commanding General's intent is to always provide a realistic, mission-focused and demanding training environment for Reserve Component Deployment Expeditionary Force units in order to better prepare them for deployment; ensure no degradation to the unit's wartime contingency capability and fully maximize the time for RC units in theater. A significant portion of pre-deployment training and readiness will occur during pre-mobilization.
Post-mobilization training is the core competency of First Army as it validates and deploys RC, Joint, Combined, and Active Army Forces. Post mobilization training is mission-focused, thoroughly planned, coordinated, and conducted to Army standards. During post mobilization training the effort will be focused on collective training that culminates in the MRE/MRX. This will not only prepare units and Soldiers for deployment, but will enhance First Army's credibility as the Army's premier training command.
