U.S. Army Paratroopers fire high-explosive rounds from an M119A2 105mm howitzer during live-fire training at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska on January 11, 2016.

These soldiers are from the 25th Infantry Division’s 2nd Battalion, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

Odd fun fact: the motto of the 25th ID, first activated in Hawaii in 1941, is “Tropical Lightning.” While the division is still headquartered at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, two brigade combat teams, including the 4th BCT are posted in Alaska.
