Dec 15, 2011

Marines with the 24th Marines Expeditionary Unit provide security at a notional American Embassy here as role players protest and bang on the fence during a training scenario as part of the Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX), Dec. 15. The scenario has the Marines preparing for a non-combatant evacuation operation, called NEO for short, to evacuate American citizens and other authorized personnel from a country in turmoil. The 24th MEU is currently taking part in COMPTUEX, scheduled to take place Nov. 28 to Dec. 21. The training is meant to develop cohesion between the 24th MEU and Amphibious Squadron 8 in conducting amphibious operations, crisis response and limited contingency operations while operating from the sea.
