Two Finnish soldiers post security in the attic of a building while Marines prepare to repel into the room through a breach in the ceiling and clear the building down to the ground level during a Military Operations in Urban Terrain Instructor’s course in Helsinki, Finland, Jan. 23, 2014. The two-week long course focused on tactical movement in an urban environment, room breaching and clearing, combat lifesaving and medical evacuations, detainee handling, and live-fire ranges. The training and partnership between the U.S. and Finnish forces proved to be an integral part of BSRF-14’s mission of maintaining and further strengthening close-and-solid relationships while promoting regional stability and increasing interoperability with partner nations in the region.
