1st Cavalry Division's Steel Dragons Train While Overseas

Jillian Angeline reports.

KUWAIT - The 2nd Battalion 82nd Field Artillery Regiment of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team conducted a couple firing tables to maintain proficiency for the field soldiers.

A spokesperson for the 3rd Brigade said they take part in the training to keep current with requirements for their jobs. 

The 1st Cavalry Division posted some pictures of the training on their Facebook page this weekend.  The team completed Artillery Tables V and VI, according to the post.

The 82nd Regiment is currently based in Kuwait overseas.  Last month in March, soldiers of the 2nd Battalion 82nd Field Artillery Regiment provided critical assistance in helping Iraqi security forces reclaim Mosul from the Islamic State in Iraq.  The soldiers provided critical assistance by using precision artillery technology to take out ISIS mortar locations within the city.
