Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As the battalion master gunner, it is Sgt. 1st Class Warren Jenkins’ duty to verify artillerymen from 3rd Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, 101st Airborne Division Artillery Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, are proficient in their artillery skills.

“As an artilleryman, it’s important for us to be able to support our maneuver brethren in the fight, wherever it may be,” Jenkins, said. “In order for us to provide timely, accurate, safe, fires, we have to go through a series of tables [performance tasks] to train up individually and collectively.”

The Red Knights battalion platoon-level artillery external evaluation, or Tables 11-12, is a twice-a-year exercise that concludes Friday. The training advances the battalion’s combat effectiveness and readiness.

Artillerymen from C Battery, 3rd Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, 101st Airborne Division Artillery Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), conduct a platoon-level external evaluation live-fire, Jan. 31, 2018, at a Fort Campbell, Kentucky, training area. This training is conducted twice a year and is part of progressive training evaluations which begin with individual testing, and continues through battalion-level. (Sgt.
