The 38th Infantry Division is an Army National Guard division based in Indianapolis, Ind.

Task Force Cyclone's mission is to provide assistance to the Afghan government in security, construction, economic, and agricultural support in assigned areas of operations.

They will also facilitate the reception, training, housing, and sustainment of U.S. troops entering the country.

While at the training center, soldiers work on individual training, weapons qualifications, driver's training, medical training, Humvee rollover training, and many other training tasks in the past year.

Brittany N. Conard

Navy Seaman Recruit Brittany N. Conard, daughter of Anna M. Conrad, Brazil, Ind., and James J. Snyder of Brazil, Ind., recently completed U.S. Navy basic training at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes, Ill.

During the eight-week program, Conard completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.

The capstone event of boot camp is "Battle Stations." This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Its distinctly "Navy" flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a Sailor.

Conard is a 2004 graduate of Northview High School, Brazil, Ind.
