Six with swine flu at Camp Shelby

CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - Officials said a total of six former cadets with the Youth Challenge Program at Camp Shelby now have confirmed cases of H1N1 swine flu - four more than reported last week.

A scheduled Saturday graduation exercise for class 30 of Youth Challenge was moved up one day, after the flu cases were confirmed.

At the time, several other cadets were showing flu-like symptoms.

National Guard officials believe the students contracted the disease in Maryland while taking part in a national competition.
