Live fire ranges are always uphill. And ammo is heavy.

I’m not sure that pic is actually on Schofield Barracks itself. Back in the day, we did a fair amount of live fire training on Dole property leased for maneuver and occasional live-fire.

I can honestly say this, though. I never had a CSM leaning over my shoulder doing an eval. Good to see some of the heavies getting dirt on their boots.
