An Idaho Army National Guard sniper prepares for his first reconnaissance mission, applying camouflage body paint and donning his ghillie suit. Recently, the Idaho was tasked with forming a small sniper scout platoon within the 2nd of the 116th Calvary Brigade Combat Team. This year marks their first training in the field and coincides with the 116th Brigade’s two-week annual training at the Orchard Combat Training Center on June 8, 2018.
