Marines train for air support operations in Afghanistan

Fellow Marine officers learn the process of calling in airstrike support as 2nd Lt. Brian C. Neri directs his instructor, Capt. John W. Pelzer, to bring his toy aircraft against enemy troops in the open, simulated by the plastic soldiers two grid squares in front of Neri’s position. These Marines built this scale terrain model of a Camp Lejeune bombing range behind the headquarters building May 12 to practice procedures before going to Camp Lejeune to conduct live fire exercises. The officers were awaiting classes at the flight school in Pensacola, Fla., but were pulled from the waiting pool to train for becoming individual augments to combat units in Afghanistan where they would help control airstrikes.
