Swimsuit season is here and one group is getting ready to hit the pool.
The Kansas Guardsmen will remain in Colorado for up to 15 days. The lightning-caused fire is 15 percent contained. So far it has burned more than 52,000 acres, destroying about 100 homes and other structures.
The 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley will conduct a Full-Scale Protection Exercise June 26 to 28 to put all of the installation's protection systems to the ultimate test as about 400 people participate in a simulation of several catastrophes on post.
Fort Riley will soon have a Candlewood Suites on post that is scheduled to open in the fall 2013.
