Join the U.S. Special Forces and see the World! Or stay at home and just have a lazy look at TFB’s Photo Of The Day and share the experience from the Latvian Zemessardze and the US Army Special Forces in these pictures.
Above we have a Heckler & Koch G36 in the hands of a Latvian Zemessardze. The Zemessardze is an all-volunteer force charged with protecting the Latvian homeland. Some of their units are mentored by U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers.
Soldiers with the Latvian Zemessardze prepare to move out during a small-unit tactics exercise near Iecava on 7 June 2020.

To learn more about the Latvian National Guard please check here. Apart from the HK G36, they also use the Heckler & Koch G3 which they were given by Sweden. The Latvian National Guard with M14 Rifles and Schmidt & Bender optics is pretty cool as well.
