Marines and sailors train under extreme stress at sea

Corporal Jonathan C. Nguyen, team leader, Security Platoon, Maritime Raid Force, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, conducts horizontal strikes with a non-lethal baton during the Oleoresin Capsicum Course off the back of USS Peleliu, April 11. The training involved the servicemembers being sprayed and completing a series of obstacles to re-instill confidence and discipline in their abilities to react while disoriented. The 15th MEU is comprised of approximately 2,400 Marines and sailors and is deployed as part of the Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group. Together, they provide a forward-deployed, flexible sea-based Marine Air Ground Task Force capable of conducting a wide variety of operations ranging from humanitarian aid to combat. Nguyen, 26, is from Orange County, Calif. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. John Robbart III/Released)
