Tri-Tech Students Visit Yakima Training Center

Posted: Updated:

SELAH, Wash.-- Students from the Tri-Tech Skills Center visited the Yakima Training Center today to learn more about military vehicles.

Members of the Washington Army National Guard gave them a tour of some of the vehicles, including an Abrams tank and a 155-millimeter artillery system.

Guard members talked about the upkeep of the vehicles, and let the students look around inside.

"It's actually pretty nice of them to let us come over here and just view thing things out, see what's happening around here, Yakima," said Tri-Tech Student Irving Nunez.

"Really awesome, like, I wouldn't think I would've been out here, you know, looking at these real machines," said Fidel Chavez, another Tri-Tech Student.

Guard members also spoke with the students about career opportunities they could pursue with the guard after graduating.
