Sgt. Jason R. Wehrer, the wrecker non-commissioned officer in charge with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, sprays down a window with a garden hose at Blue Care Nursing Home here, July 11. The Marines and Sailors of the 31st MEU and USS Bonhomme Richard cleaned the windows throughout the nursing home and then enjoyed morning tea with the residents. The 31st MEU is in Australia to participate in exercise Talisman Saber 13 as part of a scheduled deployment in support of regional security operations in the Asia Pacific. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps' force in readiness for the Asia Pacific region and the only continuously forward-deployed MEU.
