    Troops of the New York Army National Guard’s 27th Brigade move through the Army’s Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC) at Fort Polk Louisiana during the brigade’s war-fighting exercises there in August, 2001. The unit, now designated the 27th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT), is heading there again for war-fighting exercises in July. New York Army National Guard combat veterans, who trained with the brigade at JRTC in 2001, advised troops to be ready for Louisiana’s hazardous heat, plants and animals. But the veterans also praised JRTC’s training value, saying it prepared them for deployments during America’s war on terror. “(The troops) are going to get world-class training,” said 27th IBCT Command Sgt. Maj. Tom Ciampolillo, of Glenville, N.Y. “Whatever they came in the Army to do, they’re going to do it at JRTC.” (U.S. Army National Guard file photo/released)
