In this Photo Of The Day we have a happy team of U.S. Marines and Naval personnel with the Special Reaction Team, Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Installations Pacific. They’re posing for photos during multiple weapons sustainment training earlier this year. The location is Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan. Camp Hansen is named for the Medal of Honor recipient Dale M. Hansen. Hansen was killed by a Japanese sniper’s bullet three days after his actions on Hill 60, during the Battle of Okinawa.

It looks like the team had a wet humid day, to say the least.

U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Dylan Diamond, a team leader with Special Reaction Team, Headquarters and Support Battalion, Marine Corps Installations Pacific, fires an M4A1 Carbine during multiple weapons sustainment training on Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, Aug. 11, 2022. The members of SRT are attached to the Provost Marshal’s Office and are specifically trained and equipped to react in scenarios like an active shooter, hostage situations, and barricaded subjects.
