FORT POLK, La. – The Indiana National Guard’s 76th Infantry Brigade Combat Team is spending the latter part of July and first part of August at the Joint Readiness Training Center in central Louisiana.
More than 6,000 personnel make up the training contingency that Col. Robert D. Burke, commander of the 76th, and Command Sgt. Major Steven J. Bishop are responsible for. The 38th Infantry Division public affairs team sat down with them in a small one-room chapel on Forward Operating Base Warrior to talk about what it’s taken to get the Indiana-based unit to this point in their training.
