Soldiers from Detachment 1, Company C, 3rd Battalion of the 142nd Aviation Regiment of the Maine Army National Guard recently completed various simulations of events that would occur in a combat zone. Some of these training simulations included an aerial gunnery range where crew chiefs fired M240H automatic machine guns out of the helicopters' side doors at targets on the ground. This effort is all part of the unit's annual training this year. Spc Jarod Dye Photos
