[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
All the pictures for the War Games series were taken inside Fort Irwin in California, a U.S. Army National Training Center about 35 miles north of Barstow. To provide realistic training for the U.S. Armed Forces (Army, Marines, Air Force and Navy) and some Canadian soldiers the army built originally a replica of an Iraqi village (but is now designated as an Afghan village due to the changes of the conditions of those countries) and hired Iraqi people to populate the village during training.

(From Wikipedia) Fort Irwin & the National Training Center (NTC) is a major training area for the United States Military. Located in the Mojave Desert in northern San Bernardino County, California, the base is part of the Installation Management Command (IMCOM). The opposing force at the NTC is the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the Blackhorse Cavalry, who are stationed at the base to provide an enemy force to units on a training rotation at Fort Irwin.

Hi Eleu,
A nice daily life shot of this training session.
A very sharp image with so many colorful clothing.
Very neat presentation of this more or less documentary shot, in a way!
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Eleu.
A nice journalistic composition showing us a training facility captured with good details and nice contrast colors but the scene which is seen here and the get up and the dresses are of Afghanistan rather than Iraq.
My Best Wishes
