CAMP GRAFTON TRAINING CENTER, DEVILS LAKE, N.D. — After two weeks of training on a variety of military occupational specialties and Army tasks, Annual Training will come to an end tomorrow for North Dakota Soldiers in the 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, Fargo, N.D. The brigade has been training at Camp Grafton Training Center, near Devils Lake, N.D. Other units training with the brigade at Camp come from across eastern North Dakota, including the 817th Engineer Company (Sapper) from Jamestown; the 132nd Quartermaster Company from Grand Forks, Cando, Bottineau and Rugby; and the 835th and 897th Concrete and Asphalt teams from Carrington. The 1st Battalion, 188th Air Defense Artillery Regiment from Grand Forks, Fargo and Bismarck also conducted their Annual Training at Camp Grafton the first two weeks in June, prior to the brigade’s arrival.
“This year’s annual training has gone incredibly well as we brought together different units of the MEB for some realistic training on a wide variety of military skills that Soldiers use in both peacetime and war,” said Lt. Col. Bob Ruud, of Harwood, N.D., 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade commander. “Our Soldiers learned new techniques and refined their previously acquired skills as they fired on weapons ranges, conducted physical fitness exercises and trained on combat scenarios. They all performed very well.”
