Recruit Marcin Wierzbicki, 44, a manager in an energy company, shaves during his 16-day basic training for Poland's Territorial Defence Forces, at a barrack in a military unit in Siedlce, Poland, December 14, 2017. "I am a pragmatist and I believe that we will not take part in battles," he said. "We will take care of things that are necessary for people, such as guarding key objects, controlling road points, defending population of course, and minimising the impact of an attack on the community."
