A group of Afghan soldiers with 4th Brigade, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, look to their target off in the distance to gauge the angle for their 60mm mortars while preparing for the culminating live-fire exercise at Forward Operating Base Gamberi, Afghanistan, Jan. 8, 2014. The soldiers have trained on the system for over a month with 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment. As the election season comes close, modern military skills like this will give the Afghan National Army a major advantage over any enemies of Afghanistan. The 2nd Battalion is a part of 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Task Force Patriot.
