600 New York Army National Guard soldiers from around the state will head to Fort Drum on Friday.
It’s for an annual command-post-exercise going on until the end of the month.
The soldiers will take part in a computer simulation that tests their ability to plan and execute missions. It forces the soldiers to plan missions as they would in an actual battle.
Soldiers stationed in Latham, Troy, Syracuse and New York City will be heading to Northern New York for the training.
