JPMRC Exercise strengthens Philippine-U.S. Army partnership, interoperability

The Philippine Army's inaugural participation in the U.S. Army's Joint Pacific Multinational Readiness Center (JPMRC) Exercise bolstered the interoperability and partnership between Philippine Army and U.S. Army soldiers who trained side-by-side in a spectrum of military operations from mid-October to mid-November 2022 at various training grounds in Oahu, Hawaii.
The 91st Brigade Reconnaissance Company of the Philippine Army's 1st Brigade Combat Team trained with the U.S. Army's 5th Security Force Assistance Brigade Maneuver Assistance Team as well as cavalry and infantry elements of the 25th Infantry Division at Oahu's East Range, South Range, and Kahuku Training Area.
The Philippine Army also sent a team of doctrine writers and researchers to capture the operational aspect and best practices employed during the JPMRC Exercise. The lessons learned and insights gained during the course of the training exercise will serve as the basis for the crafting of doctrines related to the establishment of the Combat Readiness Training Center in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.
The JPMRC Exercise saw the participation of Philippine Army troops in domain training challenges in conditions that accurately mimic operational challenges that they may face in a crisis or conflict.
