Cooler climate training for combat team

American soldiers training with the Grey and Simcoe Foresters wrapped up training at the Barrie Armoury Monday morning and are heading to CFB Borden.

Bravo Company 1-112th Infantry, also known as the Pennsylvania National Guard, are in Barrie and Borden to experience Canadian military training in our area.

Lt. Rob Culos, of the Grey and Simcoe Foresters, said partial training has already been completed this past weekend.

"They've been at the Barrie Armoury and just completed training this morning," Culos said. "They're packing up to head to Base Borden tonight.

"They'll be at the base all week for warfare training, and we'll be sleeping out in the field in the training area," he added.

The group will also be paid a visit by Base Commander Col. Louis Meloche.

The infantry will head back to the Barrie Armoury on Thursday afternoon as their week-long training ends.
