I'm Lance Cpl. Troy Saunders with your Marine Minute.

Marines with 1st Law Enforcement Battalion conducted firing drills, Oct. 24, at Camp Pendleton, California. The training enhanced their skills in direct and indirect firing, fire-support, firing positions on the ground and mounted-positions on Humvees. They trained throughout the day and night to prepare themselves for their upcoming deployment with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit next spring.

Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121 conducted nighttime aerial refueling training Oct. 25th at MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. This type of training gives them the opportunity to improve operational readiness and enhance pilot-proficiency at night.
