Division Marines help test USNS Spearhead’s capabilities

A Navy Corpsman with 2nd Marine Division explains to a Marine how he wants a casualty to be treated during a mass casualty drill aboard USNS Spearhead Aug. 5, 2013. “Marines are onboard because they are helping to conduct two different tests. In any acquisition program there are required tests that have to occur in order for the Navy to say this ship is ready to go,” said Maj. Andrew Hamilton the Marine Corps liaison officer for the JHSV program at Naval Sea Systems Command.
