USS BONHOMME RICHARD, AT SEA
A landing support specialist with Combat Logistics Battalion 31, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, watches a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), 31st MEU, prepare to lift a load of cargo off the flight deck here, Sept. 13. The Helicopter Support Team of CLB-31 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 Cpl. Codey Underwood)
