RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - About 4,400 soldiers from around the world are in western South Dakota for a large-scale training exercise.

The South Dakota National Guard's 30th annual Golden Coyote exercise started its two-week run in the Black Hills on Saturday. Participants have come from across the country and also from Canada, England, Denmark and Germany.

Soldiers are simulating military operations, conducting humanitarian missions and doing engineering projects as they work to enhance their skills.
