Military Training Exercises in Scranton
SCRANTON, Pa. -- Seeing military personnel in blue chemical suits is not something you see every day in Scranton. The Pennsylvania National Guard Civil Support Team based out of Fort Indiantown Gap was at Steamtown National Historic Site training in case of a weapon of mass destruction. "These exercises are extremely important to be conducted not only for the training of our soldiers who are in the civil support teams, but also to ensure the local communities of our availability and our technical prowess to be able to conduct such exercises,” Gen. David Wood of the Pennsylvania National Guard said.
