    U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Rudy Deleon stands at the bivouac site at Jungle Warfare Training Center, Okinawa, Japan, Oct. 28, 2019. During their communication exercise, Marines with 7th Communication Battalion demonstrate their ability to establish and maintain communications in any environment, including the jungle. Deleon, a native of San Antonio, Tex., is a radio operator with Alpha Company, 7th Comm. Bn. "We have all things Texas in San Antonio. We've got Texas shaped cakes, Texas shaped cookies. Tostitos has these Texas shaped tortilla chips you can buy. Whatever it takes to remember the Alamo." Part of the training focused on the unit’s ability to deploy small fire teams in support of long-range rapid deployments where the Marine Corps will need to establish austere bases.
