March 30, 2011
CONTINGENCY OPERATING BASE ADDER, Iraq- Soldiers with the 632nd Maintenance Company, 749th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 4th Sustainment Brigade, 103rd Sustainment Command (Expeditionary), qualified on their individual weapons March 10-11 on COB Adder.
Though the Soldiers of the 632nd Maint. Co. are approaching their redeployment soon, they continue to press forward with their daily mission, and that includes their routine training to include weapons qualification.
"Outlaw" Soldiers conducted range operations and qualified on every weapon system in their arsenal, and each firer qualified on his/her weapon.
"I'm looking around at everyone out on the range today, and most Soldiers are wearing a smile," said Staff Sgt. Sheena Sanders, a platoon sergeant with the company and a Los Angeles native. "It's a great day to be in the Army."
Staff Sergeant Sanders said the competitive nature of the training helped motivate the Soldiers, and it outlined to them the importance in attending the range.
"The 632nd Maintenance Company range was very successful to me," said Staff Sgt. Michael Blocker, a construction equipment repairer supervisor with the company and an Irma, Wis., native. "The Soldiers who participated in qualification were definitely set up for success. The safety personnel on the range did a great job coaching the Soldiers and ensuring all range operations were adhered to."
