"What we're doing here is building readiness to be prepared to serve overseas and do what our nation asks us to do when we are called to serve in combat and command areas of operation around the world," Colonel Boyd Miller said. One of the military's goals for "Bold Alligator" is to evaluate their equipment and ensure it's ready for wartime. Miller said the operation also helps the military explore how to incorporate new technology into its operations.
