During the Connecticut Air National Guard's April Unit Training Assembly, the 103rd Security Forces Squadron took to the field to train in fire team communication drills. Armed with M-4s with Simuntion-style ammunition, the security forces practiced shooting, moving and communicating to further enhance their base defense capabilities.

According to Tech. Sgt. Richard Marks, the purpose of the training was to build teamwork, improve talking and moving as a team and to practice shooting while moving.

Additionally, Marks said the training gives the Airmen the opportunity to get out of the classroom and to be engaged to better prepare them for deployments.
