It was raining soldiers on base Friday evening as more than 200 paratroopers with the 173rd Brigade Combat Team (Airborne) jumped out of C-130 Hercules and quickly prepared artillery to conduct a live-fire exercise.


During the drill — to prepare the brigade for this summer's exercises in Eastern Europe — the soldiers paradropped a Humvee and an M119 A3 Howitzer from about 1,000 feet above the ground.

After landing and firing their artillery, the soldiers marched to battle positions and conducted another "attack" at night.
