    Lance Cpl. Sean C. Phompanya, a machine gunner with Weapons Company, Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, adjusts the sights on an M2 .50-caliber Browning machine gun during a defense of the amphibious task force gunnery exercise aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1) at sea, Jan. 20, 2019. During the training, Marines with BLT 1/4 and crewmen with the Wasp rehearsed ship security using a variety of dismounted and ship-mounted small-arms and heavy weapons. As a part of DATF, the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group and 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit team assumed a security posture to stimulate traveling through potentially dangerous waters. BLT 1/4 is the Ground Combat Element for the 31st MEU. The 31st MEU, The Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU partnering with the Wasp Amphibious Ready Group, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform a wide range of military operations as the premier crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific region.
