POTD – TFB’s Photo Of The Day shows a potential soldier as he aims down the barrel of a machine gun.

This happened during the 6th Ranger Training Battalion’s open house in May 2019 at the Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

The event gave the public a chance to learn how Rangers train and operate. The event displays showed equipment, weapons, a reptile zoo, face painting and weapon firing among others. The demonstrations showed off hand-to-hand combat, a parachute jump, snake show, and Rangers in action.
