Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III (right) speaks with Soldiers of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, of the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif., Feb. 20, 2014. The unit provides a realistic opposition to rotational training units during two weeks in "the box," which is the nickname for the 1,200 square miles of varied terrain at the NTC where units train. The contemporary operating environment force the 11th ACR provides includes a replication of conventional forces, paramilitary, guerrilla forces and criminal elements.
