we underestimated the timeline by
approximately two weeks. A recommendation would be to incorporate
the workstation resourcing into the
published order instead of trying to
resource those items independently.
3. Establishing the three-man team construct as a way to organize within the
consolidated cell. Most of the NCOs
were singular entities as EW NCOs
at the battalion level. Post-consolidation, however, 1BCT's model was
that they would need to function
within the team construct. This
included exercising skills that appeared to atrophy during their prior
roles within the battalions. Keeping daily accountability of trackable
PERSTAT (Personnel Status Report)
items, planning and conducting battle-rhythm events (e.g., PT plans, EW
Training plans, etc.), and general supervisory actions for subordinate EW
NCOs were all things that presented
initial challenges. After a few weeks,
those skills became second nature,
and things flowed much smoother.

A recommendation would be to have
those SNCOs/Team Leaders present
draft copies of those items prior to
arrival. Items such as personnel
tracking mechanisms, PT plans, and
training tasks are things the SNCOs
could produce prior to consolidation
that would let them exercise those
skills prior to arrival at the Brigade.

CONCLUSION: SHOULD YOUR
BRIGADE DO IT?
Ultimately, you or your organization
will (hopefully) ask, "Should my Brigade
Combat Team adopt this consolidated
EW team model, or a similar, model?"
While each organization is different and
has its own unique mission, the modular/team consolidated model is one way
(but not the only way) to leverage limited EW personnel within a BCT in order to provide a substantial increase of
EW capability across the formation. The
consolidation and team construct allows
enabling EW support throughout periods
of personnel non-availability (PCS, TDY,
NCOES attendance) as well as providing
more available training resources for

the Brigade and subordinate battalions.
In addition, the ability for the junior
NCOs to receive mentorship from SNCOs
and officers within their own CMF is a
huge benefit that will pay dividends for
those NCOs, and the Army in the years
to come. Fortunately, 1BCT, 82D DIV has
a very motivated group of NCOs and an
incredibly supportive chain of command
to help this cell and teams stand up
and establish themselves. The first 100
days of this consolidation are merely
the initial steps, and the fruits of this
labor will only become more evident in
the coming years as the role of CMF 29
becomes ever more integrated into BCTlevel operations and planning. a
