    Photojournalism is the process of storytelling using the medium of photography as your main storytelling device. While a journalist will use their pen and paper to tell stories, a photojournalist will use their camera to capture the visual representation of a story. In our Photo Of The Day, we have paratroopers assigned with the 1st Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division.¬†They’re preparing to push forward as they train with their Polish Allies assigned to the Polish 19th Mechanized Brigade during a combined arms live-fire exercise in southeastern Poland, on March 17.

    The 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division is deployed in support of U.S. European Command to assure our NATO Allies in the region and deter any future aggression.
