FORT DRUM, N.Y. -- Two Soldiers give the pilot of a New York Blackhawk the thumbs up after they completed hooking their 105 mm howitzer to the bottom of the aircraft. The Soldiers are members of Battery B, 1st Battalion, 258th Field Artillery who were at Fort Drum for Air Assault training where they train to sling-load their howitzers to helicopters and move to a pre-determined area to barrage the enemy with surprise artillery strikes
