Sgt. Michael P. Hodge, the squad leader for Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, meets with the local police and village elder during a key leader engagement at the Las Pulgas Military Operations in Urban Terrain town, Dec. 11. The Marines of 2nd Squad were tasked with conducting a cordon-and-search and setting up security for a planned key leader engagement in the village. The squad was delayed by the small-arms fire so they missed the original time set up for the meeting so Hodge conducted the KLE with the village elder. Hodge is a 23-year-old from Lemoore, Calif.
