The AUP Staff Ride Team does not have travel funds. Organizations requesting our support are required to fund TDY. For a traditional staff ride, the team will thoroughly recon the areas of operation to determine stand locations and routes. In the case of a virtual staff ride, Staff Ride Team members travel to the historic locations whenever possible to recon the terrain for construction in virtual reality. All efforts will be made to conduct only one recon to conserve funds. Research trips to the National Archives or other locations may also be necessary to support the staff ride build. The lead historian for your project can provide you with cost estimates at the beginning of the project to assist in budget planning.
