Growing the ING

According the American Forces Press, this week "more than 300 Iraqis completed a 13-day boot camp at Camp Taji to become the newest members of the Iraqi National Guard, according to a second MNF-I news release.
With the graduating class of 04-07, Iraq took one step closer to its complete independence as multinational forces transferred responsibility of the training academy to the command of the ING Oct 7, officials said.
Prior to the transfer, the academy fell under the control of the 39th Brigade Combat Team, though instructors for the academy came from all over the division.
According to the release, the responsibility for day-to-day operations is in the hands of the Iraqi National Guard, but multinational forces will still be on hand if needed. "
