BUSY! BUSY! BUSY!
During the past couple of weeks FAST Company has been waist deep in multiple exercises, missions, operations, maiden rescuing and such. These include exercise Native Fury and Eagle Resolve. Both of these events involve bilateral training with Bahrain and Kuwaiti armed forces . In our case we get to sweat out in the desert with the Bahrain and Kuwait Marine Corps.
The MOUT training facility in southern Bahrain. Not a bad joint to train in.
During the night shoot portion a wall of sand blew in knocking over porta-johns and blasting the Bahrain Marines tent right into the ground. Some the Marines are still digging sand out of their ears.
During all this we still are conducting our port security missions. Why? Because evil doers need to be reminded that there are better ways to spend their time, that’s why.
I’ll try to post something with more flavor later on in the week. Someone I know said you all might forgive my tardiness in the interests of national security. Definitely will have more pictures later.
