Sgt. Maj. Edwin A. Mota, sergeant major of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, rides aboard an MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft during free-fall parachute jump training, Okinawa, Japan, Aug. 29, 2018. The Osprey belongs to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 262 (Reinforced), the Aviation Combat Element for the 31st MEU. During the training, Amphibious Reconnaissance Marines with the 31st MEU flew to a spot above a landing zone on Ie Shima Training Facility, off Okinawa’s northwest coast, before exiting a cruising MV-22B – from there, the Marines fell for approximately 50 seconds before deploying parachutes to land safely. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible force ready to perform a wide-range of military operations across the Indo-Pacific region.
