GRAFENWOEHR, Germany -- 47 Soldiers completed the U.S. Army Pathfinder Course here, Feb. 14, 2017.

The course -- which is normally only available in the U.S. -- was offered to Europe-based Soldiers in Germany through a special mobile training team from Ft. Benning.

The Pathfinder Course prepares Soldiers to establish day and night landing zones for cargo drops, and provide air traffic control and navigational assistance to rotary and fixed wing aircrafts. Inspecting equipment loaded on and strapped beneath aircrafts and help their command plan airborne assault operations are among other duties they will also assume.
