As usual, TFB has selected a bunch of pictures for you today. By this time you know it, it’s our Photo Of The Day designed to keep you in a good mood. Get some refreshments from the fridge or the coffee machine, take a break and enjoy a few minutes looking at these U.S. Marines assigned to II Marine Expeditionary Force. They’re using their M16A4 Service Rifles at a live-fire range in preparation for Exercise Cold Response. This happened in March 2022, in Bodø, Norway.
Exercise Cold Response ’22 is a biennial Norwegian national readiness and defense exercise that takes place across Norway, with participation from each of its military services, as well as from 26 additional North Atlantic Treaty Organization allied nations and regional partners.
