I'm Lance Corporal Savannah Mosby with your Marine Minute.

Marine machine gunners with 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment completed the live-fire portion of their Marine Corps Combat Readiness Evaluation at Twentynine Palms, California, July 20th. The 2/7 MCCRE is in preparation for their upcoming deployment on the Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force.

In the Pacific,
Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Marines refreshed their knowledge about F/A-18C Hornet aircraft at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, July 19th. Subject matter experts with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 232 taught these Marines the basic functions of an F/A-18C Hornet to make them more efficient at their job.

Also in the Corps,
Marines with 4th Force Reconnaissance Company alongside U.S. Army Special Forces conducted static-line and high-altitude airborne jump training at Schofield Barracks, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, July 14th. The purpose of the training was to maintain unit proficiency in successfully completing both static-line and free-fall parachute jumps.
