Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Pablo Ruiz, a rifleman serving with the 2nd Battalion of the 5th Marine Regiment, fires an AT-4 light anti-armor weapon on Range 800 at Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in California.

Ruiz’ unit, Echo Company, conducted day and night platoon attacks reinforced by a combined anti-armor team, mortar fire and machine gun fire as one of their last training exercises before deploying in support of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit.

The 31st MEU is capable of conducting limited contingency operations, amphibious operations and crisis response in the Asia-Pacific region.
