Modesto Natl Guard Troops Complain About Treatment

Soldiers from a National Guard unit based in Modesto say they´re being treated badly and receiving substandard training at a remote desert camp in New Mexico.

The soldiers are part of the First Battalion of the 184th Infantry Regiment.

In two dozen interviews, they told the Los Angeles Times they´re afraid their poor preparation would mean they would suffer higher casualties when they´re deployed to Iraq.
