PHIBLEX 2016

Some pictures I got to snap during so bilateral training with the Philippine Marines.

Getting to see their boot camp training there, you guys would be surprised how similar their boot camp is to ours. The females even have to shave their heads. 

Pretty awesome dudes, plus the locals we great.
