Muleteers and cannoneers rolled in one

Muleteers and cannoneers rolled in one, the men of Battery C, 26th Battalion, Field Artillery Replacement Training Center, consider the most impossible terrain part of the day's work. With their guns and auxiliary equipment slung on the backs of army mules, they break through thick forests, ford streams, and scale mountain ranges. Their job is to go where mechanized and horse-drawn artillery can't go.
