J INSA Leadership Visits U.S. Army's National Training Center at Ft. Irwin  

BG Jeff Broadwater, Commanding General NTC, with JINSA Chairman David Steinmann 
JINSA National Leadership recently had the honor to tour the U.S. Army's National Training Center (NTC) at Ft. Irwin. The delegation was hosted by BG Jeff Broadwater, Commanding General, National Training Center at Ft. Irwin and was accompanied by two JINSA past Generals and Admirals Program participants VADM John Bird, USN (ret.) and LTG Guy Swan III, USA (ret.). 

JINSA experienced first-hand the training operations and procedures that enable our soldiers to be combat-ready and preform at the highest level.  The visit included a welcome dinner with senior base leadership, briefings, interactions and lunch in the field with soldiers, and a tour of one of their urban combat training facilities.

The soldiers at the National Training Center briefed JINSA at the strategic, operational and tactical levels. Base leadership demonstrated the different types of training that the army requires in order to achieve army readiness. 

We would like to thank GEN JD Thurman, USA (ret.), former Commander at NTC and member of JINSA's Board of Advisors, for helping to organize the JINSA visit.  

JINSA organizes base visits as part of our outreach efforts to ensure that our leadership understands the work our servicemen and women are doing to keep the U.S. safe and to bring this knowledge back to their communities to advocate for a strong U.S. military. Conversely, we also educate officers and enlisted ranks on the important work JINSA is doing nationally and in their communities.
