USS BONHOMME RICHARD, AT SEA
The Helicopter Support Team of Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, prepares a load to be lifted by a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter from Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), 31st MEU during external lift training here, Sept. 13. The HST and the crews of the helicopters play important roles in the 31st MEU's capability to execute external lifts. The HST provides ground support to the CH-53E, which can lift up to 36,000 pounds. This lift capability can be used to overcome difficult terrain and land-based obstacles when executing logistical re-supply. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps' force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and the only continuously forward deployed MEU. (Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Tyler Dietrich)
