    Capt. Brian O'Shea, the officer in charge of the 1st Marine Division (Forward)'s Personal Security Detachment, provides overwatch for his Marines and a team of geologists Aug. 16 while on a patrol in support of Operation Centrum. Two CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters from Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 361, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Fwd), inserted the Marines and geologists into the remote area, allowing the geologists to extract almost 200 pounds of samples for further testing. The steep ravines and broken ground make the area inaccessible by vehicle.
