Tony Wenzel of Randall writes: "This is a photo that I had taken of the actual firing of the M1 Abrams tank on the Qualification Range at Camp Ripley ... during Employers Support of the Guard and Reserve, which promotes a culture where all employers support and value military service through education, recognition and mediation.

"This makes our service member aware of their rights and responsibilities under the law and the value of employers support and recognition. One of the stops the employers stop to visit their employees doing their military training was at the M1 Abrams tank Qualification Range. I was fortunate to get an action shot of the Abram firing down range."
