You've no doubt heard of the military training exercise, Northern Strike.

Well once again - for the third year, the winter component, Northern Strike 22-1 - ”Winter Strike” - will take place in Northern Michigan.

It's a week long National Guard Bureau sponsored exercise uniting service members from several U.S. states and partner forces starting next Friday (21) at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center.

Winter Strike” is held annually in northern Michigan during the coldest part of the year, as visiting units can train in subarctic conditions, so they are better able to meet objectives of the Department of Defense’s arctic strategy.

The summer iteration of Northern Strike is scheduled to take place in August 2022.
