The exercise included approximately 500 Soldiers and civilians. During the exercise, the Soldiers are placed in a scenario of conflict in the fictional states of Torrike and Framland. The Soldiers mission is to interact with roleplayers acting as local citizens of the area who either question military presence in the area, want to provide information or need help addressing humanitarian concerns. The exercise was conducted from Oct. 28 - Nov. 8 in and around Nienberg, Germany. (U.S. Army photo by Capt. Doug Magill, 7th Mission Support Command)
