Howitzer training

Soldiers in a Wisconsin Military Academy field artillery (howitzer) training class fire a 105mm howitzer at a Fort McCoy Firing Point in late June. The training, which also included firing 155mm howitzers, helped teach the sergeants and staff sergeants in the class how to run their own artillery sections.
