A Joint Base Lewis-McChord Stryker brigade is closing out a cold month of exercises at the Yakima Training Center.
Check out the pictures they’ve been posting to their Facebook page. You’ll shiver.
The 2nd Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division spent much of February in central Washington with its 4,000 soldiers for their most rigorous exercise since they came home from Afghanistan last spring. They're outdoors much of the time training to be an "expeditionary" force that can deploy anywhere around the world.
“As you can see here the weather isn’t exactly cooperating all that much, but our soldiers continue to train hard and train safe,” Command Sgt. Maj. Timothy Dotson said last week in a video message to the brigade’s families.
