PVT Zachary Macey, a basic trainee from Lancaster, Pa., observes the situation after a bomb detonates March 17 on McKenna MOUT. A soccer player crouches for cover behind Lancaster, who waits for further information before proceeding. After gunfire is heard from other buildings near the village, the Soldiers engaged the enemy, incorporating skills learned earlier in the cycle, such as marksmanship, room clearing, first aid, team communication and tactical movement. It is the culminating field training exercise for these Soldiers, said CPT Michael Johnston, B Company, 2nd Battalion, 47th Infantry Regiment, commander.
