    Soldiers with Joint Multinational Training Group - Ukraine's Task Force Gator train instructors in teaching Ukrainian soldiers on different skill sets. Most recently, Observer Controller/Trainers at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center and trainers with the Ukraine Land Forces Command received teaching methodology, as well as hands-on experience with the M141 Bunker Defeat Munition. The M141 is a single-use, shoulder fired system designed to penetrate fortified positions and light armored vehicles.
    Staff Sgt. David Blackwell, who has been assisting with teaching practices to be implemented for the M141, says the prior experience of his Ukrainian counterparts, whether from prior training or from time spent in active conflict zones, makes them incredibly quick studies on new practices or material.
    "The OC/Ts are incredibly competent and their previous experience enables for a smooth training experience," said Blackwell. "I’ve personally enjoyed the chances I’ve had to work hand in hand with my Ukrainian partners and to use our joint knowledge and experience to better the Armed Forces of Ukraine."
