What have they done?
C Company Soldiers have traveled to Fort Knox year-round to fulfill
their annual training requirement. In addition to supporting maintenance
personnel at the TASS Training Center, unit personnel attend monthly
drill training at Fort McCoy to complete mandatory Army and Military
Occupational Specialty (MOS) training.
What do they have planned?
C Company 3rd, 399th will continue to provide maintenance support to the
TASS Training Center while maintaining unit readiness.
Why are they important?
Soldiers of the 3rd, 399th are important assets to the TASS Training
Center and the Army, as a whole, because they help keep the vehicles
needed for training operational. Without functioning equipment, students
could not conduct their training and become MOS qualified. The TASS
Training Center does not have sufficient numbers of full-time personnel
to conduct maintenance work. By providing Soldiers year-round, the 3rd,
399th helps the training center complete its mission.
