Practice Makes Perfect

(U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Michael Petersheim)

Even when they’re at sea, the Marines have more than enough to keep busy. Here we see Marines  of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) conducting rifle movement drills below deck aboard the USS Iwo Jima (LHD 7), an amphibious  assault ship.  The 24th MEU is taking part in  Composite Training Unit Exercise 2011 scheduled to take place through Dec. 21.

The training is meant to develop cohesion between the 24th MEU and Amphibious Squadron 8 in conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations while operating from the sea. These Marines are assigned to Bravo Company, Battalion Landing Team of the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.
