The previous week, we did our first of 6 FEXs. 5 days in the feild with several different stages of training. The weather held out for us with the lows in the 30s and the worst day being about 16 hours of rain. The last night for us, we performed a live round night fire. The end result is pretty cool. I'm visible in the foreground center with a M249 spare barrel bag on me.

That wasn't the only event. We also got to tour a gun line (made up of 4 155mm howitzers) and make calls for fire:

One of the best moments was a live drop of a mk82 500 lbs bomb from a AV8 Harrier during a Call for Close Air Support demo. Very awesome:

It was rough sometimes, but all-in-all, it was good stuff.
