Do you agree that the photo above is “great”? Or how would you describe it? It was taken by Sgt. Dana Beesley (I Marine Expeditionary Force) at Saylor Creek Range in Grasmere, Idaho. We can see U.S. Marine Corps 2nd Lt. Adam Niehoff, an infantry platoon commander with 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division, awaiting nightfall before a night raid during Joint Terminal Attack Controllers (JTAC) training event.
