The 428th Field Artillery Brigade trains Soldiers, Marines, and Allies in field artillery core competencies in order to provide proficient integrators of lethal and non-lethal fires to the operational force. We develop competent, confident, and adaptive leaders able to lead Soldiers and Marines in the contemporary operating environment.
The brigade is the cornerstone of the Field Artillery Branch. Here, Soldiers learn to be a leader and to become a member of the noblest profession: A Field Artilleryman.
Our charter with the operational Army is to provide a proficient Artilleryman with whom to fight the Nation’s wars. As a professional Gunner, this Brigade is home; a place where he or she will always come back to while a Soldier. Additionally, we set the foundation for junior officers to become confident and adaptable leaders. We lay the first block, the cornerstone on which all else is built.
PLACE IT WELL!
