Lance Cpl. Dustin Nixon, a 19-year-old, tank mechanic, Maintenance Detachment, Combat Logistics Battalion 15, 1st Marine Logistics Group, of Currituck, N.C., stops a vehicle containing two “locals” at the entry control point during 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. The ECP checks gave Marines the opportunity to practice the protocol for searching vehicles and personnel. 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.
