FORT GREELY, Alaska - The 100th Missile Defense Brigade and the 49th Missile Defense Battalion conduct their most comprehensive and thorough external evaluation to date at Fort Greely Aug. 20-24. Guardian Watch 18, a variation of a biannual event, was an 84-hour exercise that tested the battalion on 28 tasks and many performance measures within its two missions: defending the United States and designated areas from intercontinental ballistic missile attack and critical site security of the Missile Defense Complex at Fort Greely.
