“We’re trying to fill in some of the gaps for the big Army. This training is vital and we’ve got this great training area here at Camp Ripley to utilize. Just a big thank you to the families, the soldiers, all their hard work,” said Capt. Jeremy Mihelich, Troop Commander at Camp Ripley. “And to the communities for their support and allowing us to come out here and be loud and make some noise.”
