Soldiers battle Washington wildfires


KALISPEL INDIAN RESERVATION, Wash. (Aug. 23, 2015) -- With the Tower Wildfire burning more than 10,000 acres of forest in Northeastern Washington over the last week, the Soldiers of Task Force First Round cannot get to the front lines quick enough, and to make this happen, they are completing training, which is setting the stage for future operations.

After arriving late the previous night, the Soldiers, out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, hit training first thing during the morning of Aug. 23, as they set out to not only learn tactics, which will help them suppress the wildfires, but also help protect land sacred to the tribe of the Kalispel Indian Reservation.
