    Marine Rotational Force - Darwin

    U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Jared Drapeau, mortarman with Ground Combat Element, Marine Rotational Force – Darwin, sits in a Humvee prior to force-on-force training conducted in Mount Bundey Training Area, Northern Territory, Australia, July 21, 2020. Drapeau is a native of South Hadley, Mass.

    “I love my job. It’s dirty, but it feels great to be the one giving back. We talk all the time about our first field ops, how we screwed up. After learning the ropes and being the person others come to for help, it’s fulfilling.”

    This training involved various components of the GCE, including mortars, artillery, and combined anti-armor teams. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Harrison Rakhshani)
