Marines serving with Alpha Company, 1st Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, team up with Assault Craft Unit 5, a Navy unit based out of Camp Pendleton, CA, to make an amphibious landing. The Marines learned how to tie down their light armored vehicles onto ACU-5's landing craft air cushion, a hovercraft class vehicle, in process known as "griping." Marines loaded their company of LAVs onto the LACs in the predawn hours and landed on Camp Pendleton's Red Beach at sunrise. Produced by Lance Cpl. Corey Dabney. Also available in high definition.
