101st Air Defense Artillery Battalion conducts live fire training

 

The 2-44th “Strike Fear” Air Defense Artillery Battalion conducted Live Fire Training last Tuesday

Fort CampbellFor the military, training is a deadly serious matter: the mission is, as they say, job one. That’s why when the men of the 2-44th “Strike Fear” Air Defense Artillery Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade needed to re-certify their gunners’ abilities with the Avenger weapons system; it became an entire unit operation involving the command staff, security teams, gunners, supply clerks, cooks, and medics.

Recent snows had turned the gravel range roads into a muddy mess dotted with puddles and gaping potholes. That made our little convoy of media undergo an ordeal of our own while driving back to the remote range.

Arriving at the location of the training, we were halted at a barbed wire check point manned by armed sentries. They radioed our arrival to their command team, and after a short wait, they moved the barbed wire, and we were allowed to pass.
