Just a little love for our favorite Marine Artilleryman, URR.
As a grunt, I always liked to tease artillerymen for being a bunch of layabouts with little to do but brew up coffee.
But this clip shows a Marine M198 155mm howitzer crew working hard at putting rounds down. And they show the end result of lots of practice- a smooth fast firing crew where everyone knows exactly what they are doing. Notice no one steps on anyone else’s toes.
And when the infantry is having a bad day, having a fast shooting gun crew on the other end of the radio is a good thing.
