Latest photos from the 24th MEU

Cpl. Franklin Onyemize, a cook assigned to Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 9th Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, slices hundreds of pounds of ham for an Easter meal aboard USS Nassau, April 4, 2010. Onyemize, 24, immigrated to Raleigh, N.C., from Nigeria when he was younger and says the best thing about being a cook is working with all the other cooks in the ship's kitchen. The 24th MEU is currently deployed with the Nassau Amphibious Ready Group and is serving as the theater reserve force for Central Command. (Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Capt. Robert Shuford)
