    Lance Corporal Rashon Burrell, an automatic rifleman with Company K, Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, and a native of Waterloo, Iowa, climbs over a wall as part of a squad competition at Camp Hansen, Aug. 8. The competition started at 5 a.m. with one squad starting every twenty minutes. There were seven total stations the BLT Marines had to complete, which included a physical circuit course where the Marines performed squad pushups, jumping lunges and air squats. Another station challenged the Marines to answer infantry-related questions for points that helped toward their overall time. They concluded the competition with a swim before using their rifles to shoot at targets while moving from position to position. The 31st MEU is the force of choice for the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU.
