Col. Rory Crooks, the Fifth Corps Chief of Staff, last week addressed the June general membership meeting of the Radcliff Small Business Alliance.
Crooks reported the V Corps had just completed a major training exercise to assess the status of their training and preparation for war-time missions as part of the first year-long phase of unit formation. He explained the challenges of standing up a unit requiring the development of all of the processes, procedures, and standard operating procedures of an effective three-star command unit.
Crooks said they recently posted some 40-plus civilian new hire positions for the Fort Knox portion of the command.
The Radcliff Small Business Alliance has made a copy of his presentation available on its Facebook page.
