Aggressor Forces

Aggressor Forces

Worn from:

During the 1970's the Aggressor Forces within the United States
Army were soldiers assigned to aid in training troops. They
were the forerunners of today's opposing forces (OPFOR). All
troops of the Aggressor Forces wore a white circle enclosing a
green triangle on the left breast pocket. It is the emblem of
the Circle Trigon Party. Soldiers assigned to an artillery
missile unit wore a white triangle with a green missile
superimposed on it. The aggressor concept emerged after World
War II, when the Fifteenth United States Army was directed to
prepare analytical studies of operations in the European theater.
One of the resulting recommendations was that the army adopt
more realistic means of training. To meet this requirement,
the concept of a fictitious "maneuver enemy," complete with a
national background, history, government, military establishment,
language, and political philosophy, was adopted. The concept
instills awareness in the United States soldier that any future
enemy will differ from ourselves in language, uniform, weapons,
military organization, tactics, and ideology. The Aggressor Center
was originally located at Fort Riley, Kansas.
