Peace protesters not happy with National Guard training
Wisconsin National Guard troops started practicing air attacks over Menasha yesterday, while peace activists protested on the ground.
Two F-16 fighters flew over downtown Menasha, in the first of a series of simulated exercises in the Fox Valley.
Lt. Col. Tim Donovan, a Wisconsin National Guard spokesman, says the training gives pilots a chance to practice the droppings of bombs in war. Ground controllers get to practice their ability to assess the risks.
