A group of South Dakota National Guard soldiers have been working with some counterparts in Scotland on their vertical engineering skills.
The 40 guard members from South Dakota worked with soldiers from the Territorial Army, Britain's equivalent of a National Guard force, last month in northern Scotland's Highland Wildlife Park during construction of a viewing walkway.
The visit was part of the Army National Guard's Reciprocal Unit Exchange Program.
Col. Tim Moran says it's a cultural and doctrinal program that gives U.S. soldiers an opportunity to learn from NATO partners.
Soldiers from the 153rd Engineer Battalion spent their two-week annual training working with British engineers from the 71 Engineer Regiment.
They built a 150 meter-long, two meter-wide viewing walkway for the park.
