Mike Ullery's Message: Sports images sort of pale in comparison to the opportunity to photograph some of the men and women who protect us and keep our country safe.

I had the opportunity to travel to Grayling, Michigan in June to photograph a live-fire field exercise with Bravo Battery, 1-134th Field Artillery, Ohio National Guard, based in Piqua, Ohio.

This was the unit's first Annual Training since returning from a year-long deployment to Afghanistan late in 2012 and their first opportunity to fire their primary weapons, 105mm howitzer cannon, since 2009.
