CAMP ROBERTS, Calif. -- As clouds rolled across the wide California sky, sending shadows racing across the green hills in Camp Roberts National Guard training center, thundering booms echoed through the valley as mortars found their targets. Half a mile away, Marines with 6th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company relayed target trajectories and coordinates to the mortarmen of 2nd Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division. The units partnered together Jan. 23, 2016 to conduct live call-for-fire training with mortars, as well as machine gun ranges to qualify their Marines.
