“The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in combat”. Is this old warrior mantra correct? Most possibly so, and the U.S. Army Green Berets in our Photo Of The Day certainly seems to think so as they perform Close Quarter Battle (CQB) training during the COVID19 lock-down.

The photos were taken somewhere in Germany. Above we look at a U.S. Army Green Beret assigned to the 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group approach a building as part of Close Quarter Battle (CQB) training, May 5, 2020.
