First indoor Army Reserve small arms range opens in American Samoa
U.S. Army Reserve Public Affairs Specialists, Sgt. Stephanie Ramirez, and Calvin Reimold (behind camera) interview Sgt. Talaleomalie Mortenson, a local American Samoan assigned to the 411th Forward Support Company, 411th Engineer Battalion, 303rd Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, 9th Mission Support Command (right), prior to a grand opening ceremony of the U.S. Army Reserve's first Modular Small Arms Range in Pago Pago, American Samoa, April 26, 2019. The MSAR is the very first Army Reserve indoor weapons range, which allows both 5.56 mm and 9 mm rounds to be fired indoors with no chance of a round escaping regardless of the direction it is fired. It is environmentally safe preventing fumes or residue from escaping while simultaneously filtering the interior air providing a safe environment for the Soldiers inside using the range.
