Do As I Do
U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Michael G. Roth demonstrates the proper tactical technique for entering a building to Honduran soldiers. Roth and other Marine and Navy personnel — including Seabees and the Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) — taught security and law enforcement techniques, and worked on several small construction projects such as replacing a water pump at a local school and building new classrooms during a week-long expert exchange in San Lorenzo, Honduras. known as Southern Partnership Station 2011.
SPS is an annual deployment of U.S. ships by Florida-based Southern Command to the Caribbean and Latin America to share information with navies, coast guards and civilian agencies throughout the region. Roth is assigned to Marine Corps Training and Advisory Group. The soldier-students in this photo (click on the image to enlarge) are assigned to the 11th Honduran Army battalion.
