M119A2 towed 105-mm howitzer crews from the Wisconsin Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 120th Field Artillery, await the grand finale of the 2011 Rhythm and Booms fireworks show at Madison's Warner Park on July 2. The Wisconsin National Guard supported the 2011 Rhythm and Booms celebration with a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter, four F-16 Falcons fly-over during the National Anthem, and four M119A2 howitzer cannons. The cannon crews answered questions about their howitzers, fired an hourly report during the day and took part in the fireworks show finale by providing real cannon fire for Tchaikowski's "1812 Overture."
