Oklahoma soldiers training for urban warfare

Dozens of Oklahoma soldiers are in the country learning how to fight in a city. Camp Gruber near Muskogee has one of the better urban warfare training facilities in the nation.

Members of the 45th Infantry Brigade were learning all about it Friday. The military is putting a heavier emphasis on urban fighting, because that's what they're facing in Iraq.

Oklahoma Adjutant General Major General Bud Wyatt: "Number one, stay alive, but number two, to discriminate between innocent civilians and combatants."

The soldiers are training up to 12 hours a day in the oppressive heat.
