POTD: Ghana Armed Forces Clear A Ship

The world is hungry for visual storytelling, and TFB’s Photo Of The Day does its best to keep the feed live. What made you click to see more is probably the picture above, where a member of the Ghana Armed Forces holds his position while other team members climb up a ladder (note the grappling hook) during the Flintlock exercise held in Volta, Ghana, on March 2023. Both these handguns (above and below) look like mock-ups, don’t you agree?

Flintlock is U.S. Africa Command’s premier and largest annual special operations exercise that strengthens key partner nations throughout Africa, in partnership with other international special operations forces.
