Brig. Gen. Roger R. Machut, the commanding general of 4th Marine Logistics Group, and Sgt. Maj. Richard Lewallen, the 4th MLG sergeant major, help locals push an all-terrain vehicle stuck in snow here, April 15. The ATV was hauling medical supplies unloaded from a National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter to this rural Alaskan town, where service members taking part in Innovative Readiness Training Arctic Care 2013 would provide medical, dental, and veterinary care. IRT Arctic Care is a multi-service humanitarian and training program focusing on enhancing the interoperability and capacity of U.S. forces in peacetime support operations, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. The exercise is primarily a Reserve effort with Marine Forces Reserve taking the lead and receiving logistical and medical support from the National Guard, Army Reserve, Navy Reserve and Air Force Reserve.
