A Marine with Combat Logistics Battalion 15, 1st Marine Logistics Group, assists "wounded locals" in receiving medical aid during a mass casualty event as part of the battalion's first field training exercise of the year at Red Beach aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., May 6-10, in preparation for pre-deployment training with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit this fall. This event employed the use of role players from SpecPro Technical Services aboard base who used make up to present the service members with authentic-looking injuries. The exercise allowed CLB-15 to practice procedures and protocols they will apply while acting the 15th MEU's primary logistical support element during its deployment early next year. Providing this support to the MEU allows it to focus on its chief objective as a crisis response force, ready to respond to disaster or humanitarian relief operations.
