Marines return to amphibious roots

Sgt. Jonathan L. Leger, a landing support specialist with Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, gasps for air while creating a floatation device during the regiment's swim qualification aboard Camp Lejeune, N.C., Jan. 8, 2013. In the intermediate qualification, Marines tread water for 10 minutes then used their clothing as floatation devices to learn how to remain afloat if stranded at sea.
