Ed Rykard (left), chief of tactical gaming for the Joint Multinational Simulations Center, or JMSC, trains Staff Sgt. Ely Chagoya (right) on gaming simulations administration. Chagoya is the first participant of the Career and Education Readiness partnership between the JMSC and the Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe, Bravo Company. The Career and Education Readiness program aims to partner Warrior Transition Unit soldiers who are separating or re-classing with civilian and military employers to build or strengthen the Soldiers’ skill sets in preparation for transition. The JMSC volunteered to participate in the program and host a wounded warrior intern. The JMSC provides an array of training that replicates various combat situations, allowing soldiers to experience realistic scenarios without endangering life or equipment. The simulated training provided by the JMSC is cost effective for the U.S. Army.
