The word photograph is a combination of Greek words and means “drawing with light”. The word was invented by Sir John Herschel, over 180 years ago. When I think of this, I see things like the picture above, where an U.S. Army operator is working that barricade with various drills. The pictures are from an advanced marksmanship drill, during a training event at Panzer Kaserne, Germany. This photo was taken at a month-long Special Forces training event that evaluated team skills and readiness.
A good quote to go with these images is: “Nothing builds confidence like live ammo” by Tim Dorsey, Atomic Lobster.
Below: Peek-a-boo! Who’s hiding?
SOF operators assigned to 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) conducted a live-fire advanced marksmanship training evolution on the range at Panzer Kaserne, Böblingen, Germany, June 28, 2018.
It looks like there’s plenty of safety with that kind of backstop.
