MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho - A U.S. Marine from the 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company Supporting Arms Liaison Team engage “insurgents” at a Juniper Butte Bombing Range mock village near Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Oct. 9, 2013.
The SALT assaulted the village and seized weapons of mass destruction during exercise Mountain Roundup 2013.
Mountain Roundup goes beyond Marines; it's an opportunity for a major coalition partner nation - Germany - to certify proficiency on mission employment tasks. It's the 1st ANGLICO SALT who provides realistic training scenarios while re-qualifying their joint terminal air controller proficiencies and polishing urban kinetics.
Air power, close-air support, urban combat scenarios mixed with plenty of motivation and sweat has defined Mountain Roundup 2013 here at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho. Tax dollars are being spent wisely as this group of 1st ANGLICO Marines is on the hook for an upcoming deployment.
