Jordan Hayes, assistant mortar gunner, a long-range training round during a live-fire certification exercise, Nov. 29. Blair, Hayes and their fellow crewmembers were working on firing from a mounted position, which enables the mortar section to quickly maneuver with lighter elements of the squadron and provide them with indirect fire support.
