U.S. Marines from 3rd Marine Division, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear defense platoon, Headquarters Battalion, III Marine Expeditionary Force, prepare to respond to contaminated cargo during exercise Habu Sentinel 16 at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, June 7, 2016. Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152, stationed at MCAS Iwakuni, assisted in the scenario by providing a taxiway combat off-load. Pallets suspected of radiological contamination slid from the cargo bay of a KC-130J Super Hercules onto the taxiway where CBRN Marines were staged nearby in order to respond swiftly and effectively. As the annual capstone exercise for the division’s response element, this event encompasses multiple objectives specific to CBRN response and validates unit standard operating procedures in an unfamiliar training environment.
