Marine company trains to confuse, defeat enemies

CAMP PENDLETON — A Marine rifle company mounted in up-armored Humvees conducted a simulated raid June 8, as part of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s pre-deployment training.
In a course hosted by I Marine Expeditionary Force’s Special Operations Training Group, Marines and sailors of the unit’s ground combat element, Battalion Landing Team 3/1, trained to secure, confuse and destroy their enemies.
The raid force was comprised of Marines from Company K, BLT 3/1, and Marines from the unit’s logistics combat element, Combat Logistics Battalion 11.
“We’re making sure the basics are second nature,” said 1st Sgt. Josue Ayala, Company K first sergeant.
The five-day course is one of many training events the Marines will complete before deploying with the 11th MEU later this year.

let’s be real…there is nothing "combat" to do with a combat logistics battalion…it’s a really big supply unit who deploys to the safest areas of the middle east…i’ve had the distinct pleasure of serving with a few CLB Marines who were detached from their unit and attached to mine…JOKE…i also spent 9 hours picking up remains of CLB Marines who were blown up because they weren’t paying attention…accidents happen, but what was worse was that their huge convoy couldn’t even call in their own medevac…they froze while our guys (several of which had concussions) posted security and called it in for them.
