The article discusses the training conducted by 120 soldiers of the 25th Infantry Division from Fort Wainwright, Alaska in India during Exercise Yudh Abhyas in 2008. The soldiers were subjected to training in camp before conducting a field-training exercise with India's 5th Ghurkha Rifles. The training included low intensity counter-insurgency actions. Since the training was at a high altitude, soldiers adjusted by playing sports with their counterparts. They also were exposed to yoga sessions.
