Senior airman Marianique Santos, U.S. Air Force, got an honorable mention in the Combat Training category in the Defense Visual Information Awards 2015 with the photo above. The photo is called “The Drag”, and we see U.S. Army Soldiers from the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, as they carry an injured soldier during a training exercise at Fort Bragg, N.C., April 15, 2015. The exercise tested the soldiers’ abilities to successfully conduct a mission, complete the objective and rapidly evacuate casualties.
Ever since photography was invented in the early 1800s it has been a medium of almost limitless possibilities Today most people have at least a smartphone nearby to capture what’s going on, and the professionals use even more advanced cameras and optics. At TFB we’ve been running our Photo Of The Day for years, where we share the best photos with “firearms” as the lowest common denominator.
