NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — Dozens of members of a New York Air National Guard unit that provides security for U.S. air bases will head to Michigan this week for weapons and urban combat training.

Some 50 airmen with the 107th Air Wing’s Security Forces Squadron depart Thursday for the Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center in northern Michigan.

Air Force regulations require Air National Guard security forces to conduct intensive urban combat-style training every three to four years. During the training, the airmen from western New York will fire tens of thousands of rounds of ammunition from machine guns and grenade launchers.

The airmen will be at the training site for two weeks. The 107th Air Wing is based at the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.
