Combat engineers with 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit place explosives after a squad of infantrymen cleared the area as part of a company live-fire exercise during Realistic Urban Training aboard Fort A.P. Hill, Va., June 7. During the 18-day training evolution, the MEU will conduct several urban training exercises as part of its pre-deployment training. The urban environment is among the most challenging tactical environments MEU Marines may face. The 26th MEU is scheduled to deploy later this fall.
