As the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit's Training in an Urban Environment Exercise wound to a close, Marines from Charlie Company, Battalion Landing Team 1st Bn., 2nd Marines, spent their last few days patrolling the town of Terra Alta, W.Va. This provided the infantrymen an opportunity to conduct patrols in a mountainous residential area where interaction with the local population was inevitable. This exercise was one of the final training evolutions during TRUEX before the Marines headed back to Camp Lejeune, N.C., and prepare for their deployment later this summer.
