Mar 25, 2010

Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV) crewmen from the AAV platoon, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, conduct a water gunnery range at a beach in Djibouti, Africa, March 25, 2010. The water range was the first time in 20 years that this AAV platoon performed this type of aquatic marksmanship training. The range was one of a series of sustainment and bilateral exercises the 24th MEU conducted in the east-African country throughout the month of March. The 24th MEU is currently on a seven-month deployment aboard ships of the Nassau Amphibious Ready Group and is currently the theatre reserve force for Central Command.
