Angola's Fuzileiros Operaçües Especiais Marines prepare



Angola's Fuzileiros Operaçües Especiais Marines prepare to clear buildings after disembarking a boat during room-clearing training, Oct. 7, in Lobito, Angola. U.S. Marines and U.K. Royal Marine Commandos trained the Fuzileiros Operaçües Especiais Marines as part of the Africa Partnership Station, which is a U.S Naval Forces Africa initiative that aims to increase the maritime safety and security capacity of African partners through collaboration, regional cooperation through engagement exercises that build toward self-sustained African security of the maritime domain. The training came at the request of U.S. Naval Forces Africa and UK Royal Navy to support NAVAF’s Africa Partnership Station missions in the Gulf of Guinea. Five U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy sailor from Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response-Africa took part in the training, alongside their UK Royal Marine Commando counterparts, which also included visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS), immediate action drills, patrolling, weapons handling, marksmanship and combat lifesaver training. The APS also made stops in Ghana, Nigeria and Togo. (Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Navy Lt j.g. Jason Bond/Released)
