Marines with 2nd Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, guide M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks off of a railcar at Fort Pickett, Va., March 28, 2014. More than 350 Marines and sailors with the battalion will be taking part in the month-long, field exercise. The tanks are approximately one foot wider than the railcar, which makes this a slow paced and focused operation. A total of 22 tanks and four M88A2 Hercules Recovery Vehicles were unloaded from the railcars.
