Jahrahrah Gousby (seated), of Brooklyn, N.Y., a gunner with Battery A, 1st Battalion, 76th Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, confirms the sight picture on a 105 mm M119A2 howitzer while his assistant gunner, Spc. Victor Aguilar, of Lake Dallas, Texas, prepares to discharge the weapon during a dry-fire exercise at Combat Outpost Sultan Khel, Wardak Province, Afghanistan, Oct. 3, 2013. The M119A2 howitzer is capable of hitting targets up to 12 miles away. Since the Battery A fire team arrived at Sultan Khel in September, enemy mortar and rocket attacks against the COP have been dramatically reduced, largely due to the fire team's accuracy and quick response time.
