Master Sgt. Michael Montoya, a member of the 2nd Battalion, 378th Observer Coach/Trainer (OC/T) Regiment, utilizes his decades of combat experience to supervise training lanes for Combined Support Training Exercises (CSTX).
Montoya, a former member of Special Forces, assists the 84th Training Command in teaching and improving support units’ in convoy operations here. Exercises are an important step in building the most capable, combat-ready, and lethal Army Reserve force in history.
“Warfare has changed in the decades since I joined the Army,” said Montoya. “We built these training lanes two years ago to provide a group of obstacles to teach and improve the tactical skills of our combat support Soldiers.”
These convoy operations lanes, roadside bombs, near and far ambushes, and CS gas attack stations were developed to improve each unit’s training readiness and to assess how they perform in a dynamic operational environment.
