SU cadets and cadre fly to Fort Dawson for field training

Twenty-nine cadets and one cadre from Shippensburg University’s Raider Battalion flew off to Fort Dawson, W.Va., last Thursday for their annual joint field training exercise. At approximately 11:30 a.m., two CH-47 Chinook helicopters, flown by the Pennsylvania National Guard took off from the soccer field near Fogelsonger Road. According to www.boeing.com, each Chinook helicopter is capable of carrying 33 individuals and when empty weighs about 23,401 pounds.
