It was an interesting experience for many of the servicemen and women at the armoury Saturday afternoon.
Many members took part in a computer simulated assisted exercise to help with the planning of an artillery regiment here in the city.
Major Gillian Dulle from Moose Jaw says having a great set up with all the tactitcians there was fantastic for them.
“What you see is some support combat arms support work units, and that’s where my unit, my people, come in,” she said. “So we’re providing the combat arms, the maneuver piece for the artillery to support, and then you got the artillery in the back ground.”
Dulle says the skills this simulation exercise offers are essential to developing a soldier’s professional portfolio.
“Our soldiers are gaining some planning skills, they’re gaining alot of communication skills, early planning and interacting with other military trades that we don’t necessarily get to interact with all the time.”
