In our Photo Of The Day, we see an Afghan soldier providing overwatch security with a Romanian PSL rifle on an observation post while U.S. and Afghan soldiers observe rounds fired from Afghan artillery. These pictures are from 2012, almost 10 years ago. The bottom image is even older.
Below: A soldier watches the impact area as rounds are fired by the “gun line” during a live-fire exercise in eastern Afghanistan, Nov. 25, 2012.
