Georgia SDF Graduates New Basic Training Class

The Georgia State Defense Force recently graduated a new IET (Initial Entry Training / Basic Training) class of troops. The State Defense Forces are mostly made up of prior service US Military service members, those with no prior service background must undergo this Basic Training to instill basic military courtesies, discipline, and training.
