Northern Strike 17...pic by Spc. Alan Prince

Marines from Bravo Company, 4th Amphibian Assault Battalion based in Jacksonville, Florida, in combination with M1 Abrahams tanks, Light Armor Vehicles, and Infantry Marines conduct combined arms exercises at the Multi-Purpose Range Complex (MPRC) at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center during exercise Northern Strike 17. The Marines take advantage of the large ranges at the MPRC to fully integrate all supporting elements and maximize their training. Northern Strike 17 is a National Guard Bureau-sponsored exercise uniting approximately 5,000 service members from 13 states and five coalition countries during the first two weeks of August 2017 at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, both located in northern Michigan and operated by the Michigan National Guard. The newly accredited NS 17 demonstrates the Michigan National Guard's ability to provide accessible, readiness-building opportunities for military units from all service branches to achieve and sustain proficiency in conducting mission command, air, sea, and ground maneuver integration, together with the synchronization of fires in a joint, multinational, decisive action environment.

Wow.  That's a pretty big exercise and its being put on by the Michigan National Guard?  Interesting.

I notice that they're all in on  the Army's Multi-Domain Battle Concept too. Think I want to see more pics of this thing....
