In September 2018, the US Army announced the 4th Infantry Division’s 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team would con­vert from a light infantry brigade to a Stryker brigade, start­ing in 2020.

As part of the start of the “WarHorse” brigade’s tran­si­tion, master dri­vers through­out the brigade com­plet­ed a “train the train­er” Stryker Drivers Course January 21 – 31, 2020, which was hosted by the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 4th Inf. Div.

A master driver at a brigade- or bat­tal­ion-level, accord­ing to the Army Driver and Operator Standardization Program reg­u­la­tion, “is the most expe­ri­enced indi­vid­ual in the orga­ni­za­tion when it comes to oper­a­tor train­ing and is respon­si­ble for over­see­ing, val­i­dat­ing and inspect­ing the train­ing and licens­ing pro­gram for their orga­ni­za­tions.”

Master dri­vers from the 1st SBCT impart­ed their knowl­edge of the Stryker combat vehi­cle to the master dri­vers of 2nd IBCT during the course.
