Platoon live fire certification in the snow

By Staff Sgt. Paige BehringerNovember 15, 2019

A Soldier assigned to the 41st Engineer Battalion, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, runs a line of fuse from a brazier charge while clearing a wire obstacle during a platoon live fire training exercise, November 14, at Fort Drum, New York. During the scenario, Soldiers assigned to 2nd Battalion, 87th Infantry Regiment, engaged targets simulating enemy forces with direct fire, while Mountain Sappers breached a wire obstacle between the infantry platoon and its objective. Soldiers across the Commando brigade have spent months progressing from individual tasks through Expert Infantryman Badge testing, to collective mission essential tasks during team, squad and platoon level training. Company and battalion live fires will follow in the coming months, and ultimately build toward brigade level certification at the Joint Readiness Training Center. (U.S. Army photo by Staff Sgt.
