ORLANDO, Fla. –
The 143d Sustainment Command’s G2 (Intelligence) section recently completed a unique Military Intelligence-focused annual training at its headquarters in Orlando, Fla. from August 15, 2022 to August 25, 2022.
The two-week training event, part of the command’s Military Intelligence Readiness Foundry Program, allowed the soldiers to receive in-depth and targeted classes tailored to their Military Occupational Specialty and Mission Essential Tasks.
The command partnered with the Military Intelligence Readiness Command’s Southeastern Army Reserve Intelligence Support Center. Three guest instructors trained the section on both Open-Source Intelligence and Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield, vital tasks that support the command’s overall mission.
The collaborative nature of the event allowed the instructors to refine their teaching skills while also providing the necessary resources, which are not organic to the unit, to satisfy the 143d’s training requirements.
Staff Sgt. Jan Quinones, the command’s Senior Intelligence Sergeant, praised the effectiveness of the event and hopes it can serve as a model for future iterations with subordinate units.
“This was the first time the command executed its Foundry Program,” he said. “Our goal is to replicate this training for the Military Intelligence Soldiers at the brigade and battalion-level and possibly Army Reserve-wide.”
