A corpsman with Battalion Landing Team 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, fires at his target during a marksmanship qualification event as a part of the battalion’s Corpsman Cup here, Oct. 22. The competition included all “docs” within the battalion and tested medical skills used during combat, in garrison and on ship. The competition served a dual purpose in honing the sailors’ skills under pressure and providing a fun bonding experience. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps force in readiness for the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU.
