CAMP SCHWAB, OKINAWA, Japan - A Marine observes an explosion from a safe distance April 15 during a four-day basic demolition training course at Camp Schwab. With the safety of Marines paramount, properly knowing how to handle and detonate explosives can be the difference between life and death during training and real-world operations, according to Sgt. Shawn D. Olewiler, a combat engineer with Marine Wing Support Squadron 172, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force. The Marines participating in the training are with various units assigned to III MEF.
