Cpl. Ray Vizcaino, a general account balance file clerk with Supply Company, 1st Supply Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, ensures the Raven B unmanned aerial vehicle's wings are correctly attached. The 21-year-old from El Paso, Texas, noticed how easy the system is to use and that it practically flies itself. The UAV is used for area reconnaissance to provide instant feedback of its surroundings to units on the ground.
