Evening Quickie #soldierporn: Animal swarm incoming.
More than ten UH1Y Venom helicopters inserted Marines with Animal Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, during a raid exercise. The Animal Co. Marines inserted into a training town by fast roping from the helicopters and engaged enemy role players while a designated team captured a suspected high-ranking insurgent. More than 20 Marines in the company were designated as enemy combatants and set up traps and obstacles throughout the town to challenge the assaulting Marines.
