Our DAs assist in collecting USAR Field Maintenance Program statistics and assist with inspecting the requirements of the Army Reserve Commanders Maintenance Discipline Program (CMDP). This training also includes conducting full lifecycle analysis of mission requirements, activities, and design; developing analysis and reporting capabilities and also monitoring and reviewing the performance and quality of GCSS-Army training plans to identify improvements.
Bravo Company mechanics from multiple disciplines worked with both active duty and civilian technicians to maintain and repair equipment used during the training exercise. Soldiers maintained a steady state of operations, moving between physical fitness, maintenance and repair, and hands-on training tasks. In total, Bravo Company Soldiers completed approximately 36 repairs across all military occupational specialties represented within the unit.

Served as the Senior Logistics Officer in the 2d Infantry Division. Responsible for monitoring and analyzing equipment readiness statuses; determining maintenance workload requirements; coordinating equipment recovery, evacuation operations and maintenance time lines. Advised the division Chief of Staff, and the Deputy Commanding General for Support (DCG-S) on all matters concerning combat power generationand readiness. Areas of special emphasis are: establishing and monitoring field and sustainment level equipment reset programs, identifying unit equipment shortages and coordinating with ASC, FORSCOM, and HQDA G-4 for sourcing solutions.
I completed the Maneuver Captains Career Course with zero experience in an ABCT. Commanding in a mechanized formation, with all its challenges, is incredibly rewarding. Officers with years of experience in Infantry Brigade Combat Teams (IBCTs) have much to offer and learn while serving as company commanders in ABCTs. Success for infantrymen in ABCTs require commanders to embrace a maintenance culture, equally emphasize mounted and dismounted training, and fostering lethality by synchronizing mounted and dismounted capabilities.
Companies executed services as a tactical operation. This included a company operations order, company CP (in the maintenance bay) and an out brief to the battalion commander. Commanders are active during this entire month. They continually place themselves at points of friction.
Secondly, commanders must physically involve themselves in their own maintenance program. Conducting daily checks on vehicle commanders and engaging with mechanics is paramount to success. Platoon leaders and platoon sergeants must be as accountable for the maintenance of their vehicles as they are for the conduct of a live fire range. Platoon leaders are responsible for knowing the status of their downed pacers. They also have to know if parts are on order, have they passed Z Park, and the expected shipment / arrival date.
A successful stressor is requiring platoon leaders to brief the battalion commander on all downed pacers once it hits the deadlined ESR. This is not meant to chastise a platoon leader for a non-mission capable Bradley. Pacers require maintenance all the time. But it is meant to stress the importance of maintaining awareness and pressure to fix downed vehicles. Weekly company maintenance meetings allowed me to stay informed and articulate my priorities not only for our combat platforms but for all my commodity shops.
