173rd Airborne Brigade paratroopers air assault through mock village during Saber Junction 14

The paratroopers in platoon-size teams stormed the buildings in a zig-zag and leap-frog formation with other platoons, said paratrooper Spc. Nicholas Smart of Rye, from New Hampshire. One platoon at a time, they went into each building and cleared the enemy combatants from the village.
