POTD: US and Côte d’Ivoire Special Operations Forces By: Eric B


Let’s go to Jacqueville in Cote d’Ivoire, or The Ivory Coast (Africa), for our Photo Of The Day. We see U.S. and Côte d’Ivoire special operations forces conduct a Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET). JCETs like these are intended to enhance U.S. relationships with partner nations by developing and maintaining critical military-to-military connections and improving joint and allied readiness and interoperability.

Bullpups like the IWI Tavor are great for operations like this thanks to their short overall length.

If you didn’t know, The Ivory Coast is one of the world’s largest exporters of cocoa beans.
