Second, they are ready and available to assist other units and organizations from the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, and law enforcement personnel / first responders in all areas of tactical training.
These Warriors are subject-matter experts in all areas of tactical operations to include: combatives; weapons; communications; calling for and adjusting indirect fire; combat lifesaver techniques; air assault operations; military operations on urban terrain; IED defeat techniques; operations in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear environments; and all leader tasks.
This team is designed to augment and work closely with the Massachusetts Army National Guard’s Pre-Deployment Training Assessment and Evaluation (PTAE) Team which is responsible for ensuring that units deploying into combat have validated in all training standards as directed by First Army.
All members of the Camp Edwards TTT are NCOs recently returned from deployments in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, have held leadership positions, are qualified instructors, meet all Army standards, and live the Army Values.
