Soldiers with 4th Brigade, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, compete in a speed drill to see how fast they can set up their 60mm mortar system and get it laid onto a target, Jan. 8, 2014, at Forward Operating Base Gamberi, Afghanistan. The speed drill happened during the Afghan National Army soldier's final day of training on the mortar system with 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment. The Afghan National Army then tested the accuracy of their targeting with a live-fire exercise meant to show how the weapon performs during a real battle, experience that will aid the soldiers in securing against the enemies of Afghanistan during the approaching presidential elections. The 2nd Battalion is a part of 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division.
