September 5, 2019

BOISE, Idaho -- The Idaho Air National Guard’s 124th Civil Engineer Squadron and the Idaho Army National Guard’s 116th Cavalry Brigade Combat Team and Installation Support Unit completed construction of BIA-211 Damon Trail during an Innovative Readiness Training project conducted Aug. 19-26 at Duck Valley Indian Reservation, Idaho.

“We faced similar tasks out here that we’d face in the field, so it was good training for us,” said 1st Lt. Matthew Mills, deputy base civil engineer, 124th CES. “I am very impressed with everyone who worked on the project. We had fairly seasoned heavy equipment operators teaching beginning operators. That’s what this was all about — getting our training up and getting our readiness up, so when these Airmen and Soldiers go overseas they know what to do.”
