Army Pvt. Johnathan T. Gall has graduated from basic combat training at Fort Jackson, Columbia, S.C.

During the nine weeks of training, the soldier studied the Army mission, history, tradition and core values, physical fitness, and received instruction and practice in basic combat skills, military weapons, chemical warfare and bayonet training, drill and ceremony, marching, rifle marksmanship, armed and unarmed combat, map reading, field tactics, military courtesy, military justice system, basic first aid, foot marches, and field training exercises.

He also has graduated from the Fire Support Specialist Advanced Individual Training course at Fort Sill, Lawton, Okla.  The field artillery specialists serve in intelligence activities including target processing in field artillery, cannon battalions, division artillery and maneuver brigade and headquarters and fire support elements.

The course is designed to train students to establish, maintain, and operate radio and wire communications and speech security equipment, including encoding and decoding messages.  They also must prepare and maintain daily staff journals, fire support situation maps, charts and other fire support and target processing procedures, records, and documents.  In addition, students assist in initiating requests for field artillery, mortar, naval gunfire, and aerial delivered munitions, and emplace, maintain, and assist in the operation of laser range finders, target designation, and night observation devices.

Gall is the son of Lori and Jeff Kuka of Canyon Country. He is a 2010 graduate of Royal High School, Simi Valley.
