Marines overcome challenges, improve close combat techniques on ship

Lance Cpl Aaron A. Mendoza, a 22-year-old Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear defense specialist with the Command Element, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, and a native of Whittier, Calif., watches the instructor demonstrate techniques during Marine Corps Martial Arts Program training here, Sept. 12. Those participating in the MCMAP training have to work around the challenges that being deployed on an amphibious warship presents, including time limitations, confined space, dim lighting and unstable fighting grounds. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward deployed MEU. (Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Codey Underwood)
