Camp Lejeune, N.C. - A Marine with Motor Transport platoon, 2nd Amphibious Assault Battalion reloads a .50 caliber machine gun at Gunnery Table 5 at Camp Lejeune, N.C., Sept. 7-9. The range focused on disassembling and assembling the .50 cal mounted on an AMK-23 7-ton armored vehicle, using the weapon properly and adhering to weapon safety rules. The Marines cross-trained on the vehicles they routinely service to familiarize them and provide the ability to fill in for a fallen Marine in a combat scenario. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl.
