    180709-M-PG096-1038 MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (July 9, 2018) – U.S. Marines with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion and Canadian soldiers with the Royal 22e Régiment release a combat rubber raiding craft from a CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter during helocast training as part of Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise off the coast of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, July 9, 2018. Helocasting is an airborne technique used by small unit, reconnaissance forces to insert into a military area of operations or maritime insertion point. RIMPAC demonstrates the value of amphibious forces and provides high-value training for task-organized, highly capable Marine Air-Ground Task Forces enhancing the critical crisis response capability of U.S. forces and partners globally. Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines, about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 27 to Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California.
