Operations Specialist Planner for the Asymmetric Warfare Group (AWG) at the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). The AWG, headquartered at Fort Meade, Maryland, is the lead organization to provide the Army with global perspective and expertise in full-spectrum training, planning, and execution of countermeasures to AW. The AWG personnel are seasoned war fighters and functional area experts who identify and develop Army solutions for AW capability gaps. AW are operations conducted by any government or non-government entity (including terrorists, guerillas, militias, and paramilitaries) to limit military effectiveness while achieving their political objectives. AW operations are conducted at the strategic, operational, tactical, and cyber levels to attack military and civilian targets. Objectives of these AW operations are to undermine U.S./Allied political, military, economical, and psychological strengths and the will to win.

The AWG provides observation, analysis, training, and advisory support to Army and Joint Force units to enhance their capabilities to predict, mitigate, counter, and defeat asymmetric threats and methods. The goal of AWG is to improve the capabilities of the U.S. Army at the operational and tactical levels during the conduct of unified land operations. AWG enhances the capabilities of U.S. units by making them faster and more adept at identifying and attacking enemy vulnerabilities, and by preparing them for a broader spectrum of threats.
