Awesome photos from US Army-SANDF training in South Africa

The South African National Defence Force and US Army have teamed up to conduct training exercises in SA. The training is to help the countries better prepare for attacks by terrorist groups and to combat ambushes, which soldiers often face when conducting peacekeeping operations. The joint training – dubbed the Exercise Shared Accord 2017 – is also set to enhance military cooperation between the US and SA, and will take place from 17 July to 3 August.

“Over 1,000 military personnel from the US and South Africa will participate in the annual, combined, joint military exercise,” said the US Embassy in SA[1].
