HIMARS fires rounds
Second Platoon, Battery B, 5th Battalion, 3rd Field Artillery Regiment soldiers fire two rounds from their High Mobility Artillery Rocket systems at Yakima Training Center in Central Washington State May 24 in support of a fire coordination exercise for an element of 3rd Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division. It’s customary in the community of Multiple Launch Rocket Systems, like the HIMAR, to tape new platoon leaders’ patrol caps to the backs of the rockets before a live fire, thereby destroying them and properly welcoming the new second lieutenants to the team.
