Monday Marks Start Of 31st Annual Golden Coyote Training

The 2015 Golden Coyote Training exercise, hosted by the South Dakota Army National Guard, started Monday and will continue until June 20, reports the Black Hills Pioneer.

Units from all over the country will be participating in these exercises, as well as units from Denmark and Canada. The Canadian Army Reserve will be managing the Forward Operating Base at Custer, one of five bases operating during Golden Coyote. Canada is the only allied nation to have operated a base in the 31 years of this training exercise.

Exercises range from mock combat operations to hauling firewood to South Dakota’s Reservations,according to Black Hills Fox News. The training focuses on team and leadership building exercises and demonstrating the interoperability of the armed forces.
