Marines with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s ground combat element, 2nd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, maneuver toward the site of an explosion of an Anti-Personnel Obstacle Breaching System, during a live-fire training exercise as part of Realistic Urban Training Marine Expeditionary Unit Exercise (RUTMEUEX) 14-1 aboard Fort Hunter Liggett, Calif., March 18. RUTMEUEX is the first large-scale opportunity for integration between the ground combat element, aviation combat element, logistics combat element and command element of the 11th MEU. The training places its participants in environments similar to those they’ll see during their upcoming deployment.
