In each of our Photo Of The Day articles, we bring you the work of inspiring photographers from around the globe. Today we take a look at soldiers from 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment (Gimlets), 2 IBCT, 25th Infantry Division deployed to Kahuku Training Area Oahu, Hawaii as they conduct company evaluations in movement to contact, attack and defense operations. Armed with an M240L machine gun, the gunner in the picture above provides suppressive fire.
Let there be light – machine gun action. This is what most soldiers will remember.
But marching is what you do most of the time.
Sometime we’ll also include a quote from a famous photographer:
“Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.”
– Peter Adams
