Arctic Wolves Descend Upon the Desert

By Staff US Army

From the last frontier U.S. Army Alaska's Arctic Wolves will travel more than 3,484 miles and face an 80-degree temperature difference, in order to test their readiness to be globally deployable and regionally engaged.1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division from Fort Wainwright, Alaska, officially kicks off its one month National Training Center Rotation January 12, 2015 at Fort Irwin, Calif.

U.S. Army Alaska moved more the 4,200 Soldiers to Southern California for the decisive-action rotation. To put that in perspective, the population of North Pole Alaska is only 2,214 residents. The Brigade moved 1,324 total pieces of equipment by air, land and sea from interior Alaska in the middle of winter.

A National Training Center rotation is a capstone training even that all Army units must attend in order to validate readiness for the mission sets required to address contingencies worldwide.

While 1/25 SBCT has not been scheduled for an upcoming deployment, successful completion of this training event ensures that all personnel and systems are ready for the variety of mission sets that it could be needed for across the Pacific.

This is 1/25 SBCT's first time back at NTC in over three years.
