Coalition troops from Holland, England, Germany, and America, Have devoted four weeks for training a specialized platoon of Peshmerga fighters. They were trained in close combat urban situations and offense tacticts to combat ISIS. They were updated in combat medical procedures and how to get their wounded off the battlefield immediatly to be treated. The photos consist of both the urban warfare training and live fire field exercises also the final graduation where the soldiers get a certificate from Coalition officers for there participation. The moral of the peshmerga during training was very high and the recruits were very proactive and responsive to the Coalition trainers. The bond was obvious between the Advisors and the recruits. There was a high level of respect shown to the trainers throughout the training and after their graduation from the four week course.
