    A CH-53E Super Stallion from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward), inserts a team of geologists working for The Task Force for Business and Stability Operations at helicopter landing zone Barton in support of Operation Centrum, Aug. 16. Sixteen Marines and one Navy corpsman from the 1st Marine Division (Fwd)'s Personal Security Detachment escorted the six geologists as they excavated rock samples from the area in search of rare valuable earth elements and industrial minerals. Third MAW (Fwd)'s support allowed the geologists to remove about 200 pounds of samples for further testing.
