Realistic Training Preps NCNG for Sinai
By Capt. Olivia Cobiskey, 205th Infantry Brigade Public Affairs Officer
Camp Atterbury Joint Maneuver Training Center, Ind. - "Small arms fire. Sound the alarm," one Soldier screamed to another in the guard tower as shots echoed in the air.
The Soldiers did not return fire even as the group of angry men screamed and shouted at the Soldiers, pressing their bodies against the front gate, trying to get a reaction.
It's the hardest thing about this mission, said Staff Sgt. Gregory Forbes, squad leader with 7-32nd Forward Support Company, not reacting.
"The mission in Egypt is to observe and record. The posture isn't the same it is in Afghanistan, or what it was in Iraq," said Forbes, of Greensboro, N.C., who deployed previously with the 252nd Combined Arms Battalion, Fayetteville N.C.
The Multinational Force and Observers is an independent international organization created by agreement between Egypt and Israel to supervise the implementation of the security provisions of the Treaty of Peace and employ best efforts to prevent any violation of its terms.
