POTD: M240B Machine Gun in Small Unit Ranger Tactics Course
Instagram is for beginners. TFB’s Photo Of The Day
is where you’ll find all the action. Today we’re located in Hawaii and the Lightning Academy
East Range. Above you can see Spc. John Banks, from the 2nd Squadron, 14th Cavalry, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, and Sgt. Joseph Miller, from the 2nd Battalion, 35 Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, as they fire an M240B Machine Gun
during the Small Unit Ranger Tactics (SURT) Course.
Below you can see the M249 Squad Automatic Weapon being disassembled at the Lightning Academy Gym, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii.
SURT students perform weapons familiarization through disassembling, reassembling, and conducting function checks on M249 SAWs and M240B Machine Guns.
Hot or cold? How about both? Below you can see a soldier holding his arms up after submerging them in an ice bath while conducting an 8-mile foot march.
