2/8 Marine Regiment Draws Enemy Out to Fight

Petty Officer 3rd Class Marquevis W. Chance, corpsman, Company E, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, patrols through a grassy field here Sept. 6, 2009. Just ahead, Taliban insurgents set an ambush, but no Marines were killed or injured. The Augusta, Ga., native, said his squad members always know his location during the patrol. "If anything ever happen to them, they won't panic. I'd be there in a timely manner or the Marines would bring the patient to me," said Chance.
