Established in 2014 this is TFB’s way to show carefully selected photographs daily together with a brief story. Hopefully, you’ll learn something new and interesting. We also welcome comments in the intended section below. Above you can spot U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Christian Resendez, a scout swimmer with 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, as he posts security during a small boat raid.

      @Wunder Nein PMags are issued in USMC. It is common practice to mark issued mags as if you own them in both services. Also, that dude is using the wrong BFA.
