Desert Gunslingers!

Besides our usual mission of deterring, detecting, and mitigating villainous behavior, FAST Company participates in a number of bilateral training engagements.
Recently we wrapped up a joint urban combat training package with Bahraini Special Security Forces and U.S. Naval Security Forces here at NSA. Among the various subjects and drills were tactical movement, shooting, reloading, and communication through various environments and scenarios. At the range they were able to engage multiple targets, conduct transition drills, and most importantly shoot a lot of rounds.





Just another ho-hum day moving, shooting and communicating. We get paid for this!
              
Each of the Marines who participated were later recognized by the Commander of Special Security Forces Command with the following certificate of commendation.

The desert gunslingers with their awards. One day I hope to find a cameraman who doesn’t feel I need to have a picture of the ceiling.
Just a snapshot of what some of America’s Finest have been up to.

  1. Your War Lords are not only lethal but exceptionally gracious. The t-shirt email from your lethal clerical ninja was the nicest letter I’ve received all year.

    Question though… in the picture of the fantastic ceiling I noticed all the War Lords seems to be the same height. Is there a height requirement?

  2. Oh, there are Marines in that pic? I was distracted by the fine example of recessed lighting. You might pass on my thoughts about making more of a feature of the ventilation, perhaps.
