INDIAN LAKE, Fort Drum -- More than 80 New York Army National Guard Soldiers from C Troop, 2nd Squadron, 101st Cavalry descended onto Indian Lake on the back side of Fort Drum on Aug. 10-11 to conduct their first Zodiac boat training after a long period of preparation.
The New York Naval Militia was also on hand to oversee the training and provide flotation devices and a rescue boat.
The realistic training provided a morale boost as well as giving the unit a broader mission capability not only from a military aspect but also a support for humanitarian aid.
