More than 600 soldiers with the 4th Brigade Combat Team 25th Infantry Division from Anchorage, Alaska, were participating in the exercise.

Seven of the injured were transported to a local hospital. The remaining 15 were treated on the scene. None of the soldiers' injuries are life-threatening, Camp Shelby's public affairs director said.
