Alpha Company, 2nd Battalion is a Composite Combat Arms and Combat Support Company tasked with Infantry, Armor, and Combat Engineer operations. It is administratively known as A/2-7. The Company has two Platoons.
Our mission is to provide an environment for all future and current members to gather together to enjoy Hell Loose with one another. As a highly active Company, we host multiple weekly internal/external PVP Events and conduct several School of Infantry classes designed to engage you with others inside and outside of our Company.
Alpha Company is tasked to provide a composite, combined arms force to the 2nd Battalion. The Company operates in the Hell Let Loose area of responsibility. The Company combines several disparate specialties to create a Company-Team in operations that is capable of providing effective self-supported direct fire and direct fire support, as well as conducting mobility and counter-mobility tasks. Because of the company's area of responsibility, it primarily trains to fight against a near peer adversary in a conventional conflict.
