    Formosa 2023: Machine Gun Range in Brazil

    Blue Diamond Marine Lance Cpl. Luke Schmidt with Weapons Company attached to Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, serves as the assistant gunner (A/gunner) while firing the M240 medium machine gun at the rate of “talking guns” at the range, Aug. 11, 2023, at the Base Expedicionária de Fuzileiros Navais in Formosa, Brazil, during the Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais’ (Brazilian Marine Corps’) annual Infantry Training Exercise Formosa. Exercise Formosa offers an ideal platform for the armed forces of multiple nations to enhance their interoperability, conduct joint military operations, and exchange invaluable insights on tactics and strategies. With the backdrop of an ever-changing global security landscape, the participation of the United States Marine Corps and militaries from multiple nations shows commitment to regional security and partnership. Schmidt is from Warsaw, Indiana.
