Swartzentruber, engineer equipment operator, 2nd Transportation Support Battalion, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, poses for a portrait in the Kalmar Rough Terrain Container Handler following a vehicle offload during Maritime Prepositioning Force Exercise 20, on Blount Island Command, Fla., Feb. 4, 2020.
