Photo Of The Day: Every day, all year round we at TFB publish at least one photo together with an explanation about what’s going on. We’ve been doing this for a very long time, almost 10 years. Below you can see a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System vehicle unloading from its transport aircraft at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. The HIMARS were participating in a training event with soldiers assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division. I don’t know what the HIMARS are doing in Guam, but the system has played a vital role in Ukraine.
