    Falcons take Canadian Hill 187 Competition

    Canadian Army Paratroopers of the 3rd Royal Canadian Regiment, qualify with a C6 Flex General Purpose Machine Gun during the Hill 187 Competition, the culminating event for Operation Viking Talon, on Garrison Petawawa, Ontario, May 17, 2016. A platoon from the 2nd Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, commanded by the 3rd RCR during Viking Talon, were invited to participate in, and subsequently won, the competition, taking the 2nd Lt. Ed Hollyer trophy. The competition takes its name from the last and bloodiest engagement of the Korean War for the Canadians, when the 3rd RCR Soldiers found themselves overrun during the night of May 2nd to 3rd, in 1953, on Hill 187, and platoon leader Hollyer was forced to call for indirect fire on their own position. Exercise Viking Talon and Hill 187 provided an opportunity in the ongoing effort to build upon partnership between the 82nd Abn. Div. and the 3rd RCR. (82nd Airborne Division photo by Staff Sgt.
