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. Andrew Kuppers)
