For a glimpse into how I Corps’ training might go as they prepare for their likely deployment to Iraq in early 2009, take a look at how the XVIII Airborne Corps has been preparing to do the same mission early next year.

The two-star director of joint training at the Joint Forces Command and the XVIII Airborne Corps’ one-star deputy commander for operations briefed Pentagon reporters today.

A couple interesting take-aways: The corps will likely be running training exercises for the division headquarters that will be headed to Iraq next year. And it looks like Fort Lewis could play host to senior leaders from the Iraqi ground forces for at least one training exercise in the months leading up to the deployment.
