Maine soldiers learn advanced skills at marksmanship school

Spc. Zachary Surette, a combat engineer with the 251st Combat Engineer Company (SAPPER) works with another soldier to successfully identify a target, measure the range, calculate for wind and elevation and engage the target at Camp Ethan Allen Training Site, Vt., July 25. Surette finished second in his class, out of the 12 people who successfully completed the Squad Designated Marksmanship School. The school teaches selected soldiers how to take their basic marksmanship skills and perfect them to hit targets between 300 and 600 meters away. (Maine Army National Guard photo by Sgt.
