Training is an important component of military success.
It takes dedication every day to become the best physical version of yourself and in turn, the best U.S. Army Soldier you can be.
Physical performance and success in combat may depend on a Soldier’s ability to perform skills like those required on the obstacle course. For this reason, and because they help develop and test basic motor skills, obstacle courses are valuable for physical training. There are many opportunities for endurance Confidence courses can develop confidence and strength by using obstacles that train and test balance and muscular strength and grow personal confidence. Here we see the Soldiers of the 35th Signal Brigade maneuver through an obstacle course that test individual skills and confidence at Fort Stewart, Ga., during the brigade’s Best Warrior Competition. The competition will determine the 35th Signal Brigade’s Soldier and Noncommissioned Officer of the Year.

Land Navigation can be summed up with eight words,
"MISS BY AN INCH, MISS BY A MILE."
Current U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command ensures every U.S. Army Soldier acquire and maintain a basic knowledge and competency in land navigation using paper maps and compasses. There is a growing threat to the U.S. GPS capabilities and so the necessity to retain a redundant capability to maneuver on the battlefield remains. Here we see specifically Specialist Steven Kamer and SGT Dennis Holland both multichannel transmission systems operator-maintainers, assigned to the 67th Expeditionary Signal Battalion, and PFC Clarence Walker a chaplain assistant, assigned to the 63rd Expeditionary Signal Battalion, and SSG Michael A. Merancio, an automated logistical specialist, assigned to the 51st Expeditionary Signal Battalion, 35th Signal Brigade based out of Fort Gordon, Ga., competing in the 35th TTSB’s best warrior competition to determine the noncommissioned officer and Soldier of the year for the 35th Signal Brigade.

U.S. Army Soldiers assigned to A Company, 50th Signal Battalion (Expeditionary) XVIII Airborne Corps departed yesterday to the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility in support of Combined Joint Task Force - Operation Inherent Resolve - عملية العزم الصلب. The name Inherent Resolve is intended to reflect the unwavering resolve and deep commitment of the U.S. and partner nations in the region and around the globe to eliminate the terrorist group ISIS and the threat they pose to Iraq, the region and the wider international community. It also symbolizes the willingness and dedication of coalition members to work closely with our friends in the region and apply all available dimensions of national power necessary - diplomatic, informational, military, economic - to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS. The 35th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade deploys and executes Mission Command and Network Operations (NETOPS) of Expeditionary Communication Systems for XVIII Corps, ACF or designated land component commanders conducting Unified Land Operations and current missions.
Food service Specialists assigned to the 67th Expeditionary Signal Battalion 35th Theater Tactical Signal Brigade worked on their respective crafts during the battalions “Signal Week”.
During this week Soldiers trained on the maintenance, execution of mission sets and operation of equipment, as well as took time to teach new Soldiers from the experience of their superiors.
But not all Soldiers in the Lightning Battalion are communication specialties.
The culinary specialists trained on one of the most over looked but most appreciated skill sets to have in a deployed environment, field feeding.
Soldiers of Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 35th Signal Brigade recently improved their basic rifle marksmanship with a weapons familiarization training held at Fort Gordon, Georgia's Engagement Skill Trainer 2000. These qualifications are a small but important piece of individual and unit readiness.
