Mock Afghan Village Being Built In Western South Dakota

Army National Guard soldiers are building a mock Afghanistan village in western South Dakota that will be a target for Air Force bomber practice missions.  Members of the 842nd Engineer Company are helping build the village on federal land north of Belle Fourche. The 842nd returned home last fall after a year of duty in Afghanistan.  Sgt. 1st Class Rob Carr, of Lead, says the goal of the project is to give Air Force flight crews training in identifying an Afghan village. He says the area in the future might be used as an urban warfare training site.
