Afghan mortarmen test their mettle

A 60mm mortar team with 4th Brigade, 201st Afghan National Army Corps, stands ready to begin a speed drill of setting up the tube and laying it on target in as short a time as possible on their final day of training, Jan. 8, 2014, at Forward Operating Base Gamberi. Being able to accurately lay onto a target and do it quickly are skills that will give them an advantage in securing the Afghan people against the enemies of Afghanistan during the upcoming presidential elections.
