About 100 members of a special forces class at Fort Bragg will put their war skills to the test during the annual two-week training exercise known as Robin Sage.
The demonstration began Saturday and is the final test for soldiers training to become part of the Army's Special Forces.
The exercise is designed to teach students unconventional military tactics in communications, movement, combat and medical aid skills.
Robin Sage activities will take place over a 15-county area stretching from Davidson and Cabarrus counties on the west to Hoke and Scotland counties on the east.
Trainees will wear distinctive armbands when dressed as civilians and individuals role-playing as law enforcement officers will wear distinctive hats and armbands. About 200 soldiers will act as opposing forces and freedom fighters during the exercise.
