Guard moves equipment from rail yard to Camp Johnson

June 7, 2019

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont National Guard has returned from a training exercise in Louisiana and now is moving returning equipment from rail cars in Burlington to Camp Johnson in Colchester.

The equipment was used in a training exercise that the Guard participated in in Fort Polk, Louisiana.

The Guard said there would be a higher impact on traffic than previous rail operations with small convoys traveling from the rail yard to Camp Johnson during the day.

The rail operations started Wednesday and could run to Saturday.

The Guard says the Joint Readiness Training Center Rotation is the largest training exercise available for infantry brigade combat teams. It says more than 5,000 soldiers from 18 states and territories took part in the exercise.
