FORT SHAFTER — When identified to support a mission to Kuwait, the 8th Human Resources Sustainment Center, 8th Theater Sustainment Command, coordinated training for more than 60 Soldiers for them to gain relevant knowledge from HR experts, an understanding of an HRSC roles and responsibilities, and to reinforce relationships with strategic partners in the Pacific and Central commands.

“The 8th HRSC will provide comprehensive and expert theater-level human resource support to Army, joint and multinational forces deployed to the Central Command area of operations,” said Sgt. Maj. Kelly Stransky, Plans, 8th HRSC.

During their deployment, the Soldiers of 8th HRSC will find themselves performing a variety of tasks, such as human resources planning, postal, casualty and personnel accountability, Stransky added.

To assist in their training, 8th HRSC got support from the U.S. Army-Pacific G1 and the 14th HRSC at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, April 20-24, at the Mission Training Complex on Schofield Barracks. The support consisted of systems training, analysis and practical exercises while the subject matter experts from the units discussed their tactics, techniques and procedures specific to daily operations while deployed.

The training also consisted of master scenario event list tasks that challenged the Soldiers’ doctrinal knowledge and technical systems skills and to consider theater-specific events.

Stransky said the training helped in validating the HRSC for its deployment, and it gave HRSC the opportunity to train with the unit they will be replacing when they deploy.
