    Lance Cpl. Dakota Hicks, a native of Laharpe, Ill., and a machine gunner with 2nd Platoon, India Company, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, connects a radio battery to a Solar Portable Alternative Communication Energy System at Patrol Base Gumbatty in Sangin District, Dec. 31. SPACES is a flexible solar panel, that can be carried by a Marine and is used for recharging radio batteries. With more room in their packs from fewer batteries, the coalition forces can pack more essentials, like ammunition. SPACES is one of four renewable energy devices that comprise the Experimental Forward Operating Base project.
