Chief Warrant Officer 2 David Franco (left), a 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) targeting officer, assists Sgt. Chad Beyer, a student in the precision fires operator course, with a practical exercise to mensurate targets during training at the Kinnard Military Training Complex on Fort Campbell Jan. 30. Franco, along with two other targeting officers from the 101st, are the first in the Army to achieve precision fires instructor certification at a division level. This certification can contribute to as much as $1.5 million savings for the division in its training budget.
