During 2014, the battalion built upon success from 2013 by concentrating on crew- and squad-level collective training. The battalion continues to receive new equipment that improves communications in support of both federal and state missions.

In April, the battalion conducted their second annual Air Assault selection. This training prepares Kansas soldiers to be successful at deploying from various U.S. Army aircraft while in flight.

The tank companies in Lenexa and Emporia began training in June on the M1A2 SEPv2 Abrams Main Battle Tank.

In August, the infantry companies in Lawrence and Wichita completed training on the new Bradley vehicles with day and night gunnery exercises at Fort Riley. They also successfully completed a squad live fire exercise, validating them for more advanced training.

The Headquarters staff built upon Military Assistance to Civilian Authority training from 2013 by increasing mission command competency through instruction and exercise.
