Maine soldiers learn advanced skills at marksmanship school

Select soldiers from the Maine and Vermont Army National Guards work together during squad designated marksmanship school at Camp Ethan Allen Training Site, Vt. The soldiers spent two weeks going over measuring distances, calculating elevation and wind factors, both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. "We start by giving the basic knowledge in the classroom," said Sgt. 1st Class Charles Palmer, a senior instructor with the 2nd Modular Training Battalion. "We coach them on position, teaching them the tricks of the trade, such as wind factors, and estimating range. Then we start taking them out to distances well outside their comfort zone."
