FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md.-Members of the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group's Able Squadron use stacked storage containers to ascend a "simulated" underground shaft in order to develop adaptability and resiliency within Soldiers while operating within a subterranean environment during training held Oct. 1 here. Each week, the operational squadron conducts a complex training event that creatively utilizes home station facilities and equipment to get at the subterranean problem set. These training events assess, develop and validate various tactics, techniques and procedures regarding the subterranean problem set and contributes to an overall collaborative AWG effort that began in May during the unit's participation in the Army's Network Integration Evaluation 13.2; and subsequently the AWG's Subterranean Risk Reduction Exercise held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., in September highlighting subterranean warfare and confined space training. (U.S. Army Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)
