RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - One of the largest National Guard training exercises in the country is underway in western South Dakota’s Black Hills.

Nearly 3,000 soldiers are taking part in this year’s 31st annual Golden Coyote training exercise hosted by the South Dakota National Guard. It started Saturday and continues through June 20.

Soldiers undergo combat and support training during the exercise and also perform humanitarian missions in the area. They’re also treated to a “morale, welfare and recreation day” that gives them a break from training and a tour of the Black Hills.
