Major General Dave Robinson
Assignment: Fort Rucker
In
a millisecond, many of our
aviation readers
will
have
calculated
a
quick response
to
the
mere suggestion
of a penn anent change of stationassignment
to
the Army
AviationWarfighting Center.
Why
should I
go
to
Fort Rucker,
AL?
I
am
a line soldier,
you
know,
part of
the
trained
andready
force-highly trained
in
tactics,techniques, and procedures-a battledrill expert
ready
to
deliver decisivevictory anywhere
in
the
world!"
Well,
read
on
because
the Army
Aviation
Warfighting
Center
provides
assignment opportunities unmatchedelsewhere

It
is
a placewhere you can make a lastingdifference
in

friction with
the
ground and
maneuver
in
the
air dimension
of
the
ground
regime.
We
are
at
a point
in
history
as
significant
as
the
Army's transition
from
horse cavalry
to
the
age ofmechanization.
We
are
moving
well
beyond
the
innovative concepts of airassault.
We
will cross the threshold of
the
next century with operationalconcepts, doctrine,
and
forces not yet
fully
realized but made possible
by
significant technology advances.Those
who
underestimate
the
future
contribution
of Anny
Aviation
willbe
left
behind.
Fort Rucker
is
not a retirementcommunity nor a place
to
stack
arms;
everyone
here
must pull
the
load.Table(s)
of
organization
andequipment (TOE) duties arechallenging
and
very
important
to
near-tenn
readiness.However,
if
you
want
to
be
on
a
team
that
is
designing
and
building
for
the
future,
you
should
seek
to
become
part of
he
professional
team
at
the
Army
Aviation War
fightingCenter.
You
should
bring
yourcreative
energies
and
TOE
experiences
to
help influence
the
future.The Fort Rucker team
is
nowcomprised of highly respected
and
successful aviation leaders;
Le.,
pastbrigade, battalion, and companycommanders, warrant officers,
and
enlisted professionals
who
come herefor
a single tour of
duty
to
contribute
operational
knowledge
and
help shape
the
future
across
a number ofim
po
rtant
areas.
Allow me
to
describe
some
of
the
opportunities.
Aviation brings
the
Ann
y
multiple
"air maneuver" capabilities: annedreconnaissance, attack, assault,
and
special
electronic
mission aircraft;
and
medium lift, medical
evacuation,
and
special operations aircraft. Aligned
with
these mission areas, dynamicchanges
are
being made
in
concepts
and
doctrine because of technologyadvances and the
realities
of a
smallforce.
Total Force initiatives beingworked
at the
Center offer enormouspotential
to
harness
the
full power ofaviation among
the
Active, NationalGuard, and Army ReserveComponents.
We
are
part of
the
Army Chief ofStaff's "Louisiana Maneuver" effort
to
detennine
the
best
land
force for
the
future. The
U.S.
Anny Training
and
Doctrine Command's (TRADOC's)
battle
laboratory
process
and
advanced
warfighting demonstrations willintegrate
the
force horizontally;
they
will
help decide
what
forces to
maintainin
the
future and
how
they
will
be
equipped. Aviation is playingsignificantly
in
mounted warfareconcepts, deep and simultaneousoperations, joint precision strike, airto-air operations,
battle
conunand
and
control,
and
innovative
combat
service
support concepts.
