24th MEU, Corporals Course, Vessel Board Search and Seizure exercise on USS Nassau 06 Aug 2010.



Cpl. John Sapp, a Marine currently in Corporals Course, leads a group of fellow non-commissioned officers up a ladder well after clearing and securing their objective during a Vessel Board Search and Seizure exercise as their culminating field operation during a Corporal's Course aboard USS Nassau, Aug. 6. The course began July 12, and will end Aug. 9. This was an effort to maintain the field training operations implemented in a Corporal's Course. Due to the lack of ability to go to the field, this was the best way for them to get the training. These Marines embarked upon USS Nassau approximately seven months ago and will be arriving home shortly. This course will send them back to their parent commands well prepared and ready to take on the next level as a Marine.

Force reconnaissance Marines with 4th Force Reconnaissance Company paddle toward the beach in F470 Combat Rubber Raiding Crafts during hydrographic reconnaissance training at Marine Corps Training Area Bellows in Waimanalo, Hawaii, Jan. 13, 2011.



Force reconnaissance Marines with 4th Force Reconnaissance Company sprint into the water with their F470 Combat Rubber Raiding Crafts in preparation for hydrographic reconnaissance training at Marine Corps Training Area Bellows in Waimanalo, Hawaii, Jan. 13, 2011. The training was part of a weeklong jump and dive training package that brought the unit, headquartered in Alameda, Calif., together with their Hawaii-based counterparts—4th Force’s 4th Platoon. Following a real-life mission, the data they collect—such as the size and frequency of wave crests, sediment type and slope of the beach—allows unit commanders to determine what type of landing and vehicles the beach’s composite supports, said Petty Officer 2d Class Mike Weissman, a hospital corpsman with 2d platoon, 4th Force.



Force reconnaissance Marines with 4th Force Reconnaissance Company swim with a gradient reel while hydrographic measurements are obtained during hydrographic reconnaissance training at Marine Corps Training Area Bellows in Waimanalo, Hawaii, Jan. 13, 2011. “We are the tool our generals use to determine the geographical makeup of the land,” said Petty Officer 2d Class Mike Weissman, a hospital corpsman with 2d Platoon, 4th Force. “Before he makes the decision to execute a mission, the beach’s gradient has to be surveyed. We come in clandestinely at night and make an underwater map of the beach for him.”

Recon Marines Sharpen At-Sea Skills, Okinawa, Japan, Aug 2011.



A Marine with the Force Reconnaissance Platoon, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, prepares to breach and clear a building at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, Aug. 18, 2011. The Marines of Force Recon Plt were clearing the house in order to build their vessel boarding, searching and seizing skills. The 31st MEU is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU and remains the nation’s force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region.



CAMP HANSEN, OKINAWA, Japan - A team of force reconnaissance Marines stack up beside the door of a concrete building here, but in their minds this is a hatch along a passageway in a ship at sea. Silent signals move them quickly through the entryway in a fluid search for targets.

The Marines of Force Reconnaissance Platoon, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, practiced room-clearing operations and precision-fire drills as a way of building their Visit, Board, Search and Seizure skills, Aug. 18, 2011.

The 31st MEU is required to be capable of conducting specific at-sea operations before it deploys for patrols of the Asia-Pacific region. Among the scenarios which the MEU must be able to respond to is a VBSS, undertaken to secure a ship at sea which may be under the control of hostile forces.

To ensure the MEU’s ability to respond to a hijacked ship, the Marines of Force Recon Plt conduct this training annually to ensure a heightened state of readiness. Although the Marines were clearing a land-based structure, the methods used are very similar, and in some cases the same, as the ones used when searching and securing a ship.

“When assaulting houses and ships, the tactics remain pretty much the same,” said Cpl Derric Hardy a radio operator with Force Recon Plt, 31st MEU. “There are a few things that change so you can still use both interchangeably to keep your training up.”

The 31st MEU’s role in the Asia-Pacific region makes the VBSS capabilities of the reconnaissance Marines even more valuable. Before the 31st MEU deploys for a patrol of the Asia-Pacific region, the Force Recon Plt conducts an eight-week training course to ensure they are prepared to respond to any situations that may arise.

During the day’s training, shooters rapidly engaged multiple targets through the use of various firing drills. They were often required to shoot while closing with the targets, and even switch weapons and engage the targets while still on the move.

According to Daniel Boung, assistant team leader for the Force Recon Plt, it is just as important to maintain weapon skills as it is to maintain VBSS skills.

“In the case of a highly stressful situation, we need to be able to engage a target quickly and accurately,” said Boung. “Doing so actually helps the survivability of the team when clearing rooms because when you see the targets, you put them down quickly with accurate fire.”

It is the constant training on weapons tactics, VBSS skills and various other training events Force Recon Plt conducts that maintain their wide range of capabilities in support of the 31st MEU.

The 31st MEU is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU and remains the nation’s force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region.
