3/6 Marines, sailors lend a helping hand

Marines and sailors with 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, unpack and organize food during a community relations project with the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, in Greenville, N.C., December 17, 2013. “It was turned into a competition of who can break the boxes down and get the boxes sorted the fastest,” said Navy Lt. Reginald E. Jones, the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment chaplain, and native of DeSoto, Texas. “We were packing so fast that they wanted us to go to lunch so they can catch up. We probably did a week’s worth of work in only a few hours.”

Part of the Marines’ mission is to mentor the Afghan Uniformed Police in the district so they can operate independently in the future.

“I always take the senior (AUP patrolman) and keep him right with me so we can (both) interact with the people,” said Pearce. “(We) ask them if they’ve seen any (insurgents) recently, if they’ve been threatened so we can get a broader spectrum (of their situation). We can track who’s been threatened so we can plan for future operations. Most of the stuff’s just been like census, feeling everybody out and trying to see if there’s anything we can do.”
