Welcome to the heat in Bandar Lampung, Indonesia, in yet another Photo Of The Day here at TFB. Above we see U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Cameron Barnes, a reconnaissance assistant team leader with the Marine Rotational Force-Southeast Asia (MRF-SEA), I Marine Expeditionary Force. He posts security on a beach during the Keris Marine Exercise (MAREX) 23, held in the PiaBung Training Area earlier this year.
Below: U.S. Reconnaissance Marines with Marine Rotational Force-Southeast Asia (MRF-SEA), I Marine Expeditionary Force, together with Indonesian marines with 7th Infantry Battalion, 4th Marine Brigade, conducting a bilateral patrol.
Do you know what kind of rifles the Indonesian marines use here? Could it be the Pindad SS2?
The bilateral exercise Keris MAREX is hosted by the Indonesian National Military between the Korps Marinir Republik Indonesia and the U.S. Marine Corps.
