    On the artillery firing line, deep in the southern training areas at Fort Bragg, Sgt. Cynthia Dominguez with South Carolina National Guard's 1-178 Field Artillery Battalion, dials in elevation data (crouching right) to the M777A2 155mm medium towed howitzer. Nine National Guard troops from North and South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Illinois and New Jersey stand ready and call out commands behind their weapons system. The students are attending the 13 Bravo artillery military occupational specialty (MOS) reclassification course and will learn how to be a crew member on the three main “cannon” artillery weapons systems in the U.S. Army: The M119A3 105mm light towed howitzer, M777A2 155mm medium towed howitzer and the M109A6 Paladin 155mm self-propelled howitzer. Over the course of two days in the field, students will fire hundreds of rounds from all three weapons. The 139th is one of only four National Guard RTIs certified to have all three weapons.
