    For the wrench-turners working in 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Motor Transportation Platoon, filthy hands are just a part of the job — oily evidence of a hard day’s work. “Dirty hands and lots of busted knuckles, that’s just something that comes with the work,” said Cpl. Dustin Truscott, an organizational automotive mechanic. “It’s rewarding.

Justin Johnson, the 3/3 Motor T maintenance chief.
