A dark, cold battlefield: My ‘Happiest place on Earth’

Two U.S. Navy AV-8B Harriers use sniper pods to target insurgents plating improvised-explosive devices with the assistance of U.S. Marine 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company Supporting Arms Liaison Team joint terminal attack controllers on the ground, during a night close-air support scenario at Juniper Butte bombing range near Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, Oct. 8, 2013. Realistic training provides the U.S. and partnered warfighters with the combat edge. Mountain Home has hosted the training since 2004 because the base has the right mix of air space, modern ranges and proficient personnel, which creates the perfect location for this type of combined-joint training.
