U.S. Army paratroopers set up an M119 105 mm howitzer at Malemute Drop Zone while conducting an airborne forced-entry operation at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, on January 16, 2019. The paratroopers are with Bravo Battery, 2nd Battalion, 377th Parachute Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division.

They joined paratroopers from 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment in conducting an airborne forced-entry operation and follow on live-fire exercise while elements from the 6th Brigade Engineer Battalion acted as opposition forces.

The soldiers of 4/25 belong to the only American Airborne brigade in the Pacific and are trained to execute maneuvers in extreme cold weather and high-altitude environments in support of combat, partnership, and disaster relief operations.
