    Lance Cpl. Alexander M. Omar, amphibious assault vehicle crewman, 3rd Assault Amphibian Battalion, and a 28-year-old native of Woodbridge, Va., recently completed the weeklong Marine Corps Combat Readiness Exercise at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 4 to 8, 2014. Omar, a 2004 graduate of Hilton High School, and his crew transported infantry Marines with 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, during an amphibious landing and subsequent land assault. After more than a decade of fighting and training for land combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, infantry battalions within 1st Marine Division have reincorporated amphibious scenarios in their training events as part of the U.S. strategic pivot to the Pacific. The MCCRE offers crucial training that prepares the Marines for upcoming deployments around the world aboard U.S. Navy amphibious ships as part of Marine Expeditionary Units.
