FORT BLISS, Texas— Mississippi National Guard Soldiers assigned to the 155th Armored Brigade Combat Team continue their mobilization training at Fort Bliss, Texas.

For more than a month, Mississippi and Kansas Guardsmen have been training in an austere environment conducting battle drills and gunnery at the crew, platoon, and company level to build cohesion across the brigade.

The 155th ABCT is preparing for a deployment in summer of 2018 to the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield, or OSS. OSS is a combined forces contingency operation designed to deter and react to possible threats within the Middle East.

The video includes an interview with Colonel (Col.) Robert D. Ferguson, 155th ABCT commander.
