Edwin A. Ventura, the tactical safety officer for the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, speaks to a Marine during a mock amphibious assault here, Feb. 9. Working as the tactical safety officer, “Ace”, as he is commonly called, works tirelessly to ensure the Marines are mindful of safety at all times. The 31st MEU recently concluded Exercise Cobra Gold 2012 in the Kingdom of Thailand, where Ace’s watchful eye ensured the safety of the Marines participating. The 31st MEU is the only continuously forward deployed MEU and remains the nations’ force-in-readiness in the Asia-Pacific region.
