Indian Army's Yudh Abhyas @ Fort Bragg

Yudh Abhyas, the annual bilateral soldier training between India and the United States, is on at the Fort Bragg military base in North Carolina.

Yudh Abhyas literally means "training for war" in Hindi. In military language, it is a theater security cooperation exercise between the Indian Army and United States Army Pacific.

Practically speaking, it is an open exchange of knowledge and operating procedures between key regional partners -- the world's oldest democracy and the world's largest democracy -- through field and command post exercises.

Additionally, the training includes expert academic exchanges on logistics, engineering, information operations and CRBNE (chemical, radiological, biological, nuclear, and high-yield explosives).
