Dismount

Marines dismount from a Light Armored Reconnaissance Vehicle to raid a compound during the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Combined Arms Exercise at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., June 12, 2016. Well-planned and aggressive training like this prepares the individual Marine to fulfill their role on the team, which in turn builds unit cohesion and increases the speed of mission accomplishment. MEUCAX is conducted to maintain a high level of combat readiness prior to the MEU’s Western Pacific 16-2 deployment later this year. The Marines are with LAR Company, Battalion Landing Team 1st Bn., 4th Marines, 11th MEU. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Zachery Laning/Released)
