Cpt. Kevin Stein, commander of Company D, 1st Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, calls in close air support from an A-10 gunship during 2nd BCT's Virtual Joint Fire Coordination Exercise held at the Battle Command Training Center Jan. 12 - 15. Steain and the other Paratroopers participating in the exercise were able to practice calling in multiple fire support assets and observe the effects on the battlefield using a specially tailored computer system similar to a video game.

I think it was a great opportunity to learn how to use all these assets and resources that we've never had before without having to actually have troops on the ground.
