Afghan mortarmen test their mettle

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. David Flores gives one last safety briefing to his students in 4th Brigade, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, to kick of the final day of their month-long 60mm mortar system training course, Jan. 8, 2014, at Forward Operating Base Gamberi. Flores serves as a mortar system lead trainer with 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, from Agana Heights, Guam. The ability to effectively engage the enemies of Afghanistan with indirect mortar fire will serve the ANA when securing their country during the upcoming presidential elections. The 2nd Battalion is a part of 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, Task Force Patriot. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. Eric Provost, Task Force Patriot PAO)
