    Petty Officer 3rd Class Donte Veals, a corpsman with the 1st Marine Division (Forward)'s Personal Security Detachment, provides security at helicopter landing zone Barton as a CH-53E Super Stallion from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Fwd), takes off, Aug. 16. HMH-361 transported Veals, 16 Marines and six geologists to the remote area in support of Operation Centrum so they could gather rock samples in search of rare valuable earth elements. The mountainous terrain made the area inaccessible by vehicle, and having a close HLZ and heavy-lifting helos allowed the group to remove almost 200 pounds of samples for further testing.
