A soldier with 4th Brigade, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, practices the proper technique for dropping a round into a 60mm mortar tube while getting ready for the final day of training, Jan. 8, 2014, at Forward Operating Base Gamberi, Afghanistan. After working with 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, for over a month to learn the weapon system, he and his colleagues have gained in depth knowledge of indirect mortar fires going into the presidential elections, which will give them an edge in the fight against the enemies of Afghanistan. The 2nd Battalion is a part of 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division.
