Taking One for the Team.

Washington National Guard photo by Army Sergeant Matthew Sissel

A member of the Washington National Guard uses his body to create an opening in a wire obstacle so his team can assault a position during Exercise Grizzly Defender in Alberta, Canada.

To us this photo (click on it to enlarge the image) looks like a hyper-realistic painting or a still from a major motion picture. It shows U.S. troops — citizen soldiers — training to adapt and overcome obstacles. It also showcases the skills of military photographers.

Grizzly Defender is a joint training exercise with the Canadian Army Reserve that focuses on offensive tasks including patrols, convoys, raids, information operations, traffic control points and company-level group attacks.
