Black Hills Host 33rd Annual Golden Coyote Training

The Golden Coyote training exercise will take place over the next two weeks in the Black Hills reports the Rapid City Journal.  Thirteen states, two territories, and one national territory will come to the area to partake in the event.  The South Dakota National Guard began the training exercises in 1984 with cooperation from the National Forest Service and Custer State Park

Initial processing will take place at Ellsworth Air Force Base and then troops will be dispersed to West Camp Rapid, Custer State Park, and the Northern Hills for the 14 days of exercises.  Training tactics will include convoy travel, first-aid, firearm use and more.  Participants are able to gain on the job experience thanks to these efforts.

To learn more about the Golden Coyote, visit the Black Hills Knowledge Network online news archive.  You can learn more about work and economy in the area by visiting the Black Hills Knowledge Network community profile.
