SAPPER team shakes the field

Soldiers from the 251st Engineering Company (SAPPERS), Maine Army National Guard conducted demolitions training at Fort Devens, Aug. 17. Spc. Jeffery Shock, a combat engineer from West Paris, Maine said the training was a great opportunity to get some hands on experience with removing defensive obstacles and safe practices. "Our primary mission is explosives, route clearance and route reconnaissance," said Shock. "We are trained in infantry, but that is secondary." (Maine Army National Guard photo by Sgt.
