Marines with 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, jump off the back of an amphibious assault vehicle during their annual surf qualification Sept. 12, 2013 at Onslow Beach aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. “We are hitting our annual requirement to conduct a surf survival,” said 1st Lt. Joel Wagaman, the 1st platoon commander with Bravo Co, and native of Hamburg, Pa. “It’s an opportunity for our Marines to come out here and practice egressing and evacuating a vehicle in the unforeseen circumstance that we have to put troops in the water whether it’s a vehicle malfunction or a vehicle sinking.”
