Night time training prepares 101st Airborne Division unit for real world situations

 

101st Airborne Divison at Fort CampbellFor the soldiers of Bravo Company, 3-187 Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Battlehard), training is a never ending proposition. How well they learn these lessons here at home, can become a matter of life or death during their time in the combat zones of Afghanistan and Iraq. The exercise they were presented with this evening comes straight from the Poppy fields of Afghanistan.

We were to meet up with the units participating in the exercise out in the field. When we arrived, the soldiers who had arrived before us had already spread out and conducted their security sweeps. Listening and observation posts were established covering the various approaches to the pickup zone. The units to be transported were in a waiting state known as PZ posture. As you might guess PZ stands for Pickup Zone.
