    A Michigan National Guard Soldier with Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 107th Engineer Battalion fires the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon (SAW) during a live fire exercise. The HHC is operating in support of the 107th during exercise Northern Strike. “It’s my first AT where we have been able to get real war training. The kind of training I signed up for.” Says Sgt. Chelsea Anderson the Assistant Readiness NCO for the HHC. Northern Strike 17 is a National Guard Bureau-sponsored exercise uniting approximately 5,000 service members from 13 states and five coalition countries during the first two weeks of August 2017 at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, both located in northern Michigan and operated by the Michigan National Guard. The newly accredited NS 17 demonstrates the Michigan National Guard's ability to provide accessible, readiness-building opportunities for military units from all service branches to achieve and sustain proficiency in conducting mission command, air, sea, and ground maneuver integration, together with the synchronization of fires in a joint, multinational, decisive action environment.
