24 MEU and Iwo Jima ESG commanders visit Marines at A.P. Hill

15 Jan 2006 | Staff Sgt. Demetrio J. Espinosa 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit

This month Marines and sailors of the Iwo Jima Expeditionary Strike Group have been training in preparation for the ESG’s upcoming deployment. 

Following the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s first at-sea integration exercises aboard USS Iwo Jima, the commander of the 24th MEU, Col. Ron Johnson and Iwo Jima ESG Commodore, Navy Capt. Sinclair Harris, spent time visiting Marines and viewing training here.

The two commanders were able to see a variety of training being conducted by all of the MEU’s major subordinate commands.  They also spent time talking to Marines about their upcoming deployment and soliciting ideas for better training or equipment the Marines could use during their pre-deployment training program.
