Write the bootable image to the USB memory stick.
# dd if=FreeBSD-13.2-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1m conv=sync 1222+0 records in 1222+0 records out 1281359872 bytes transferred in 133.713926 secs (7967966 bytes/sec)
The USB memory stick can now be pulled out and used to boot any computer, that can boot from USB.
