A U.S. Army Soldier assigned to Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa puts a firing stake in the ground for a mounted M240B machine gun during training for an Expert Infantryman Badge evaluation at Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Jan. 24, 2018. The stake is used as a reference point for the firing zone as he prepares to set up a defensive position. After two weeks of training and five days of testing, 50 Soldiers completed the process to earn the coveted special skills badge that requires Soldiers to perform an Army Physical Fitness Test, day and night land navigation, a 12-mile forced march, and 30 individual tasks covering weapons, medical, and security patrol skills.
