About the 140th RegimentMission
The mission of the 140th Regiment (MO-RTI) includes:
Provide One Army School System (OASS) regionalized Individual training, including MOS-Q, Additional Skill Identifier (ASI), leadership, and functional courses for the ARNG (all fifty-four states and territories), the USAR, and the AC.
Provide a safe and professional learning environment, quality instruction by efficient and highly-trained staff, and superb training support for all students that includes the Operational Environment (OE).
Train current and future leaders in the skills and traits necessary to lead, train, coach, and mentor Soldiers to United States Army standards.
Provide management, quality assurance, and oversight for the subordinate battalions, while monitoring and coordinating academic instruction for Soldiers participating in courses at the various training sites.
In addition, the 140th Regiment works in conjunction with the NGB in Washington, D.C., TRADOC Coordinating Element, regional coordinating elements (in North Dakota, Tennessee, Illinois, Kansas, and Alabama), and the TRADOC Combat Arms proponent school at Fort Benning, GA.
The 140th Regiment plans and programs training within its region based on requirements identified by the State of Missouri, NGB's Individual Training Branch (ARNG-TRI), the ARPRINT, and the Training Requirements Arbitration Panel (TRAP). In the Army Training Requirements and Resource System (ATRRS) School Code is 999 (MO-RTI), and RTS-M is School Code 1046.
The 140th's vision is to instruct Soldiers in the basic tenets of leadership, management, and skills so they can develop and, in turn, improve the Army. MO-RTI believes in leadership by example, leading from the front, and better management through education and experience.
The academic structure is based upon Battle-Focused Instruction in a small-group format, along with incorporating the Operational Environment. Also, we are leaning forward toward the new ALC (Army Learning Concept) 2015. While certain subjects are classroom-oriented, many subjects (such as tactics, land navigation, Observer/Controller (O/C) training, demolitions and explosives, etc.), are more hands-on practical applications and take place in the field.
In addition to the Army values and the Soldier's Creed, the 140th Regiment embraces the following values:
Committed to Excellence - Meet or exceed the Army standard
Customer Focused Service - Meet or exceed the customers' needs
Soldier growth and caring - Take care of all Soldiers and provide an environment of mentoring and professional development
Individual Soldier Readiness - Minuteman Philosophy - Always be ready to an-swer the call
Safety First - Ensure a safe operating environment
Family and Employer Commitment - Stay committed to supporting family and employer needs
Positive incremental improvement - Look for opportunities to improve in everything they do
Willingness to embrace change - Be flexible and adapt to individual situations.
Ever since 7 May 1962, when the first Missouri Officer Candidate School (OCS) class began, the Missouri Military Academy has been the standard bearer of excellence in Army education. Today, the 140th Regiment (MO-RTI), as it is now known, teaches a wide variety of courses designed to de-velop the leaders of tomorrow's National Guard and US Army Reserve.
The 140th Regiment traces its history to the 140th Infantry, which was organized in June 1898 as the 6th Infantry, Missouri National Guard and mustered into federal service in July 1898 at Jefferson Barracks. It served in Cuba with the 2nd Division, VII Army Corps.
Disbanded in 1914, it was reorganized in June 1917 and drafted into federal service in August 1917 at Nevada, Missouri. It was assigned to the 35th Division in October 1917.
Re-designated as the 140th Infantry in October 1921, it was once again assigned to the 35th Division and inducted into federal service in December 1940 at Sikeston, Missouri.
The 140th Infantry was relieved from the 35th Infantry Division in April 1959 and reorganized as a parent regiment under the Combat Arms Regimental System.
Later, it was reorganized and re-designated as the 140th Regiment, Missouri Regional Training Institute (MO-RTI) on 1 July 1996, with its headquarters in Jefferson City before moving to Ft. Leonard Wood in October 1999.
The 140th Regiment's Distinctive Unit Insignia is a blazoned shield. With a gold background and azure colors, it includes two Lorraine Crosses in the field and a seven-pointed star. The blue shield indicates the service of the former organization, the 140th Infantry Regiment. The bend is taken from the arms of Lorraine, and the two Lorraine Crosses indicate the two major engagements from World War I. The star is the Corps Badge of the Seventh Corps, Second Division, during the Spanish-American War. Originally approved in May 1927, the insignia was revised for the 140th Missouri Regiment in August 1997, and re-designated for the 140th Regiment in January 2001.
The shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI), or unit patch, worn by members of the 140th Regiment is the same worn by all state Regional Training Institutes aligned with The Army Schools System, or One Army Schools System.
The Individual Training Branch at NGB collaborated with the Army National Guard Historian to develop the current design. The basic form is a shield, which is the shape of all TRADOC Combat Arms and leadership schools patches. The colors are that of the TRADOC patch, and these represent the colors of the basic Combat Arms that also refer to the "One Army Concept:" Infantry Blue, Armor Yellow, and Field Artillery Crimson.
The shield, the colors, and the Minuteman in the foreground, were combined and the ARNG Schools SSI was approved in October 1997. Worn with pride and honor, it reminds the Soldiers of the time-honored pledge:
"Let no man say . . . "Had I been properly trained . . . .‟"
