Combat Cargo: The backbone of every movement
An entire company of Marines squeeze through the tight hallways of the USS Essex (LHD 2) wearing their flaks and kevlars, carrying their weapons along with packs filled with everything they need to sustain them for a few days in the field. As they walk into the hanger bay, cones are lined up telling the Marines exactly where they need to be. They stage their gear in their designated place and wait to make their movement off of the boat. A few hours later, a new set of cones will be placed in the hanger bay along with another group of personnel departing the ship. During the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s pre-deployment workups, hundreds of personnel arrive and depart the ship every day. No matter where they are going or whether it’s by landing craft, air cushion, landing craft utility, or an MV-22B Osprey, each person is accounted for and manifested by combat cargo. They make sure everything and everyone is where it needs to be so the MEU can be combat ready.
