SELAH, WA - Students from Tri-Tech here in the Tri-Cities were at the Yakima Training Center this morning learning about the Washington National Guard.

The high schoolers got some hand-on training from Guardsmen who showed them the tanks, firearms and safety procedures they work with every day.

One Tri-Tech student said having the opportunity to come to the training center will help him in his future career.

"Myself, I want to join the Marine Corps and I want to work on a tank, so I feel like this would be a great opportunity to know what to do," said Branden Vela who is a Tri-Tech Student.

Tri-Tech students get advanced technical and professional training that could lead to careers with the National Guard from the skills center, which offers programs at all Tri-Cities high schools.
