WIESBADEN, Germany--A team of Soldiers from Delta Company, 1st Bn., 214th Avn. Regt., General Support Aviation Battalion (GSAB) conducted the 34th Annual Monte Kali Shooting Competition, at the Wackernheim Range Complex June 22-24, 2017.

The competition, held over the three day period, consists of multiple stations in which participants threw practice grenades and fired rifles from the U.S. Army, Swiss Army, and from the Dutch Army. The attendees represented 14 NATO countries.

This is the third year that Delta Company, 1st Bn., 214th Avn. Regt., has ran the event.

The event began 34 years ago in Fulda and migrated to Wackenheim shortly after its inception.

"I believe that events like this strengthen our German and American friendship," said Staff Sgt. Jeremy Stocks, a UH-60 helicopter repairer, the NCOIC for the Monti Kali range.

The competitors fired over 76,195 rounds.

Over 21 US Soldiers earned their German Proficiency Marksmanship Badge, or Schutzenshnur, during the competition.
