Lance Cpl. James Cruse, a Lamar, Ala., native and embark specialist with the Command Element, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, hands back identification cards after he scans them during the check out process for Marines to commence their liberty, July 12, 2012. The electronic scanning system allows the Marines to maintain accountability of personnel as they leave from, and return to, the ship while in port. The USS Iwo Jima recently conducted a port stop in Bahrain to resupply, conduct ship maintenance and allow service members some liberty ashore. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a theater reserve force for U.S. Central Command. The group is providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. Navy's 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
