An army exercise being held in P.E.I. for one month will leave a mark on a number of Island communities for years to come.
Members of the 4 Engineer Support Regiment will be in P.E.I. for a construction engineering exercise from Oct. 25-Nov. 23.
Capt. Jamie Tobin, the public affairs officer for the exercise, said the NIHILO SAPPER 2018 will include more than 500 troops and 300 vehicles, which will be based out of a temporary camp in Slemon Park. From there, the regiment will go to various communities for a number of projects, such as renovations to the Boys and Girls Club in Summerside, bridge construction at Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Park, walkway construction at Lennox Island First Nation and more.
“These projects give soldiers an opportunity to conduct very valuable training that help them hone the skills they need to provide engineering support,” said Tobin. “These projects are also a way of saying thank you to the residents of P.E.I. communities for letting us conduct training in their backyard. These are legacy projects that will stay in place long after (the regiment) returns home.”
