A German army soldier with the 1st NATO Signal Battalion coaches 1st Lt. Matthew Riggs as he fires a Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle July 11, at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. Riggs, a postal officer, and 13 other soldiers assigned to the Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Sustainment Brigade, received the rare opportunity to earn the German Armed Forces Badge of Marksmanship, or Schützenschnur, while deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Riggs, a native of Oakdale, Minn., said although the badge is not authorized for commissioned officer wear, he appreciated the time spent with NATO allies. (U.S. Army photo by Capt.
