3-116th Infantry trains at NTC

Maj. John R. Harriman, the operations officer for 3-116th Infantry, provides a situation brief to Maj. Gen. Childers, the 29th Division Commander (center).

Soldiers from A Co., 3-116th Infantry, emplace 4 inch x 4 inch wood supports to form the base of the overhead cover for their defensive fighting positions.

Once the supports are in place, plywood is then placed over the supports to hold sandbags.

Soldiers from A Co., 3-116th Infantry, fill sandbags to be placed on top of the plywood supports.

Once the sandbags are in place, even more dirt is piled on top of the roof. A total of 18 inches of overhead cover is the minimum to protect soldiers from indirect fire attacks.
