Evening Quickie #soldierporn: Sound of the drums, beatin’ in my heart.

Soldiers of 1st Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division lay in a cloud of dirt after an UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter assigned to 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade drops them off during a bilateral exercise in the US Central Command area of responsibility. After being dropped off, soldiers assaulted a mock village, which tested their ability to conduct Military Operations in Urban Terrain. The week-long military-to-military exercise fostered partnership and interoperability.
