Frag Out: 29th ENG Soldiers throw live grenades
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, HAWAII -- Nervous and tense, the sweat rolls off his face as he holds a live grenade firmly near his chest. He's trained all day with practice grenades, but now it was time to do the real thing. The safety noncommissioned officer calls his name. He takes a deep breath and walks to his fighting position. It was time to rise above the fear and trust his training. The NCO gives him instructions and in seconds a grenade was in the air. "Frag out" he shouts. He dodges in his foxhole and feels the impact of the explosion. "all clear" is echoed on the range. He stands up with a smile on his face and an overwhelming rush of adrenaline.

Raven operators train to strike hard
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, HAWAII -- Picture a hot summer day in Afghanistan, and a squad of Soldiers assigned to the 3rd Brigade Combat Team preparing to convoy to their next checkpoint. Usually, the squad has to mentally prepare for the unknown but the advancement of technology works in their favor. The unit is fortunate enough to have a Raven operator, who deploys the unmanned aerial vehicle before the unit begins to travel. With 360 degrees of surveillance, the Raven's camera can observe enemy soldiers staged for an ambush. The Soldiers are able to avoid a firefight and ultimately save lives and equipment. This is just an example of how crucial the Raven can be to a unit's mission.
