U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Caleb M. Schaf aims through his sights alongside Royal Thai Marines Feb. 14 during an amphibious assault demonstration in Sattahip, Kingdom of Thailand, as a part of exercise Cobra Gold 13. “The common denominator is mutual profession of arms, which I believe is a universal language,” said U.S. Marine Lt. Col. Terry Johnson, commanding officer 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. Schaf is a field radio operator with the Battalion Landing Team, 1st Bn., 5th Marines.
