After more than a year of home-station training and preparing to deploy to Afghanistan, the Massachusetts Army National Guard’s 26th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade arrived in Texas Feb. 16 for more training tests.

The 200-Soldier headquarters will progress through a series of individual and collective events taught by observer controller/trainers of the 120th Infantry Brigade.

“One of the first things we will do is pick up where we left off in Massachusetts,” Maj. Ralph Pickett, the unit’s deputy director of public works, said.

Several feet of snow on the ground hindered the unit’s home-station training, Pickett said.

“I am glad to see the weather is much nicer here,” he said. “It makes it better for training.”

During its deployment, the Yankee Brigade will be responsible for the maintenance and construction of a cluster of U.S. bases around Kabul.
