Fort Knox, KY – When it comes to military training, the most important lessons aren’t usually learned from battalion-, company- or even platoon-level training. They’re learned hands-on in a small squad.

Soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 502nd Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), conducted a live-fire exercise and sling load operations, at Fort Knox, Kentucky, December 10th.

The overall mission was to validate each squad in preparation for higher level live-fire exercises.
