Saturday, nearly 700 soldiers from north Mississippi made the trip south to Hattiesburg, including about 150 from Troop A of the 98th Cavalry, headquartered in Hernando.
Also, 500 soldiers from the 1st Batallion, 198th Armor also reported to the camp. Both units are part of the 155th Brigade Combat Team, which will train at Camp Shelby for several months.
By early September, the entire 155th Brigade should be at the camp preparing for collective training.
A Tennessee regiment has already been training at the camp for duty in the Middle East for the past couple of months.
