National Ground Intelligence Center
wins REDTRAIN Program of the Year


    Lt. Gen. Paul E. Menoher Jr., U.S. Army deputy chief of staff for intelligence, presented the 1996 Tactical Intelligence Readiness Training Program (REDTRAIN) awards recently during a Pentagon ceremony.

    The National Ground Intelligence Center, Charlottesville, Va., was recognized as having the 1996 REDTRAIN Program of the Year, with Sgt. First Class Tyrone B. Tarver as its manager. The National Ground Intelligence Center, which is subordinate to the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, Fort Belvoir, Va., was recognized for its successes over the past year.

    Gene Rutland, III Corps REDTRAIN manager, Fort Hood, Texas, was named the 1996 REDTRAIN Manager of the Year, and Sgt. First Class Frederick A. Luckritz, G2, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Ky., received Honorable Mention REDTRAIN as Manager of the Year Award.

    REDTRAIN is a Department of the Army program designed to provide training resources and opportunities for military intelligence soldiers in the active component, the U.S. Army Reserve and the Army National Guard for sustainment and enhancement of their military intelligence skills.

    "A key element of this program is the soldiers and civilians who serve as REDTRAIN program managers in MI units throughout the Army. Unit REDTRAIN managers are responsible for ensuring that the limited funds available in the program are used to obtain the greatest possible benefit for their unit as a whole," said Lt. Gen. Paul E. Menoher Jr.

    "This means establishing priorities...and sticking to those priorities. This is a tough job," Menoher added.
