Fort Leavenworth, Kan. -- The Mission Command Training Program supported 2nd Infantry Division’s Warfighter 14-2 from Dec. 6-13 in support of their training objectives.


The exercise included training between the U.S. and Republic of Korea military forces and primarily focused on interoperability as well as conducting defensive operations against a hypothetical attack from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, commonly known as North Korea.


"MCTP Observer Controller teams worked successfully with 2nd Infantry Division's leadership, subordinate Brigades and staffs to help prepare them to be more agile and capable of overcoming present and future threats on the Korean Peninsula," said Col. Ed Bohnemann, MCTP Commander.
