VIDEO: Guam National Guard Trains for Afghan Deployment


Guam – The Army National Guard Infantry Battalion has wrapped up its week-long annual training to prepare the guardsmen for possible deployment.

The final exercise today involved a mock Afghan Village set up at Andersen South where the soldiers practiced an air insertion and live fire.

Commander Sgt Major David C. Flores says training is required to be performed on an annual basis, to make sure the Infantrymen are always prepared for deployment.

“We need to train and closely resemble what combat may be like if we have to deploy forward” Flores said.
