Paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division continued to use the punishing crucible of simulated ground combat to prepare themselves for future missions.

Paratroopers of the 1st Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Abn. Div. conducted live-fire exercises in late January during their off post training rotation at Camp Atterbury, Indiana.

The harsh terrain and frigid temperatures at Camp Atterbury challenged the Fury paratroopers and leaders while forcing them to contend with a near-peer simulated enemy. The platoon-sized live-fire exercises built upon lessons learned and techniques honed during the previous week’s squad-level training.
