Sergeant Nagai Tukasa, a mortarman with the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s 12 Infantry Regiment, prepares to submerge during shallow water egress training (SWET) at Camp Hansen’s pool, June 26. The SWET course covered how to use a breathing regulator and flotation device as well as techniques on how to escape an aircraft while submerged underwater. The involvement of JGSDF soldiers in the MEU’s regularly-scheduled training comes in response to the April 2012 U.S.-Japan Security Consultative Committee, also known as the 2+2, statement calling for the enhancement of bilateral security and defense cooperation.

Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 262 (Reinforced), 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, spray water on the Mobile Aircraft Firefighting Training Device during a crash fire rescue scenario at the base fire station, June 19. The week-long course instructed Marines on advancing and sweeping techniques with the hoses on a burning mock aircraft. The Marines are not from firefighting billets but are taught to be first-responders to potential aircraft accidents when the unit is embarked aboard Navy ships with the MEU. The 31st MEU is the force of choice for the Asia-Pacific and is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU. (Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.
