I guess this training is for those American towns that somehow avoid getting obliterated by 0bama's drones.

Marine Force Recon was doing this prior to Vietnam.

What a wacky headline.

Everyone should read the article before they head off down the wrong road, this is a routine training exercise with the town prepared for the exercise and the 30 people who would participate already chosen, but budget cuts have put it off.

“Last fall, officials representing the DOD met with communities across Central Utah, including Sanpete, Sevier, Emery and Carbon counties, to recruit local governments to host the training exercise scheduled for July 2013.

Soldiers develop skills in the training to mobilize foreign guerrilla fighters, like the Allied Forces who recruited French resistance fighters during World War II.

As part of the planned Utah training three teams of 12 soldiers would approach residents, who were respected leaders in business and in the Mormon church, and enlist their help in building a coalition.

A total of 30 citizens would participate in the missions, mainly during the evening hours, in Sanpete and Sevier counties and in Emery-Carbon county.

Over a two week period the plainclothes soldiers would depend on their civilian allies for food, lodging, transportation and supplies.

No live ammunition would be used and no private property would be entered without the owner’s permission, according to the rules of the mission.”

Looks like it really did not happen:
"So when the plan fell by the wayside due to budget cuts, many welcomed the news but some are still hopeful the exercise will go forward at some point in the future.
'This is not a one-time shot, lost to Utah. There will be other opportunities,' Paul Weddle, a retired Green Beret contracted to help the Army set up the exercise in Utah, told the Tribune.
'There's a chance that it may be rescheduled for next year but that remains to be determined,' he added."

Army officials said that utilizing real-life community leaders in their own setting would be more cost effective...

FYI
