Recent Unit Highlights

The 635th RSG participated in Vigilant Guard 2014 in Salina as part of a joint, multistate national level exercise that tested the readiness of the Kansas National Guard to respond to multiple significant tornadoes throughout the state. As part of the Vigilant Guard Exercise, the 635th established a joint reception, staging, onward movement and integration site in one of the hangars at the Salina Airport, in close cooperation with the elements of the 184th Intelligence Wing, 190th Air Refueling Wing and the Salina Airport Authority. Over a five-day period, the 635th RSG JRSOI site in-processed and integrated more than 500 active-duty and National Guard personnel from across Kansas and surrounding states, including various chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive device consequence management elements. This event helped to validate the Kansas National Guard’s JRSOI contingency plan. Additionally, the 635th acted as the mayor cell for the Salina area of operations for the duration of the exercise, managing all life support requirements for tenant units and exercise units in and around the Salina area for over a week.

As part of a statewide restationing initiative, the 635th RSG relocated its headquarters from Hutchinson to the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Topeka in early June. Over the course of several weeks, the brigade assumed mission command for five battalion-size units and one separate company; moving its headquarters to Topeka and maintaining command responsibility for both field artillery battalions until the 130th Field Artillery Brigade could stand up and assume mission command for their subordinate battalions from their new location in Manhattan. As part of this restationing initiative, the 635th RSG completely reorganized its subordinate battalion hierarchy. The brigade assumed mission command for three new battalions and the former major subordinate command responsibility of the 69th Troop Command. On July 15, the newly headquartered 635th Regional Support Group assumed mission command of the 1st Battalion, 108th Aviation; 2nd Combined Arms Battalion, 137th Infantry Regiment; and the 891st Engineer Battalion.

The 635th RSG reorganized its Modified Table of Organization and Equipment, which included an early implementation of the 2015 MTOE and an organizational increase of 20 additional soldiers and associated equipment. The MTOE reorganization includes a major shift from the traditional logistical and support centric mission to a new multifunctional mission that includes non-standard mission command in a deployed theater of operations.
