We’re Still at War: Photo of the Day for April 30, 2014


Lance Cpl. George Redhead, a native of San Jose, Calif., low crawls through the muddy water of the “pit-and-pond” section of the endurance course April 17 at the Jungle Warfare Training Center on Camp Gonsalves. The jungle is vastly different from the desert terrain many Marines have been training in for the past decade, according to Kao. The jungle does not allow for significant mechanized or motorized movements, which forces Marines to hone their dismounted warfighting abilities. Redhead is a rifleman with 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion currently assigned to Combat Assault Battalion, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, under the unit deployment program. Kao is a native of Vancouver, Wash., and is the camp commander for Camp Gonsalves, Marine Corps Base Camp Smedley D. Butler, Marine Corps Installations Pacific. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
