    U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers trained soldiers from the Latvian Zemessardze (national guard) 53rd Battalion in small-unit tactics on 7 June 2020. Following days of training on operating in denied environments, a platoon-sized element of Latvian soldiers patrolled to and attacked a simulated enemy position near the city of Iecava. Special Forces operators often train national guard soldiers in the Baltic Republics of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, improving their skills while enhancing their ability to work with U.S. forces in crisis situations.

    Soundbite in Latvian. Translation:

    Soundbite 1:
    Your technical performance is similar to ours, but your experience is different than ours, and that gives us new knowledge.

    Soundbite 2:
    The technical performance. We knew about the structure, but the performance from your side was different. But it is effective in our conditions. Henceforth, we should learn from that, so we can use it in the future. Now it feels a bit confusing, but when performing it seems to be effective. It proves to be effective.

    Soundbite 3:
    Today we learned how to perform link-up, how to get a cache storage and receive shipments, and perform an operation in an urban environment. How to destroy the enemy, surprise the enemy and destroy the firing positions.
