Info on Hohenfels

From Global Security:

"The 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division soldiers who took over the mission of Task Force Falcon in late 2000 didn’t have to go to Kosovo for a realistic preview of what they’ll encounter there. Kosovo came to them. Hohenfels’ Combat Maneuver Training Center was made to replicate Kosovo for an extensive 17-day mission rehearsal exercise that immerses about 5,000 soldiers in virtually every scenario they might encounter in Kosovo. The exercise was similar to the training begun in 1999 for all units bound for Kosovo. Combat Maneuver Training Center observer-controllers monitor the soldiers on each of the peacekeeping tasks they might perform and point out which ones they did correctly — and incorrectly. Then, the soldiers perform the task again. "
