"As the threat to the United States changes the capabilities of our adversaries continue to increase in lethality. Nowhere has this become more evident than in a chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) environment. Achieving victory in a CBRN environment relies on trained Soldiers who trust their equipment is mission capable. This requires constant repetition and maintenance to ensure the American Soldier remains a lethal and adaptive warfighter."
