Recon troopers from 3rd Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment join Latvian and Canadian recon teams for weapon familiarization training during Operation Summer Shield XII at Adazi Military Base, Latvia, March 26, 2015. Soldiers fired at pop-up targets throughout the 1100-meter range, familiarizing themselves with efficient operating techniques of sniper rifles, assault rifles, machine guns, grenade launchers, and pistols during the range day. Familiarization and cross platform training on joint weapon systems is crucial to maintaining a high level of interoperability between NATO member nations. Operation Summer Shield XII is a 10-day evolving training process during which partner forces from the U.S., Latvia, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Germany, Canada and the United Kingdom work alongside one another in combined arms and live-fire maneuvers.
