Military, agencies to train in Guam against attack

HAGATNA, Guam (AP) — The Guam National Guard is gearing up for a massive training exercise next week that will simulate terrorist threats and other destructive real-world scenarios.

Pacific Daily News (http://is.gd/SFYDlF) reports that the Guam National Guard’s 94th Civil Support Team is among participants in the multi-government training event that kicks off Tuesday morning.

The Guard unit specializes in responses to weapons of mass destruction.

Next week’s exercise is called Kontra ‘ Piligru and will involve more than 40 government agencies.

Ray Toves, director of the Army Pacific’s training and readiness division, said he could not provide details on scenarios to be played out in the training.

But he said it would be loud.

Alaska National Guard members who also are participating will conduct evaluations and identify areas for improvement.
