    Photo Of The Day – The COVID19 Coronavirus certainly changed the world. Today we’re looking at an event from the beginning of this month, held at the Móron Air Base in Spain. Above you see a U.S. Marine with the Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force-Crisis Response-Africa 20.2, as he fires at his target during a combat marksmanship range.

    The team is deployed to conduct crisis-response and theater-security operations in Africa and promote regional stability by conducting military-to-military training exercises throughout Europe and Africa.
