Marin coil,ducts marksmanship training Marine Cpl. A Marin, son of Alfredo and Leticia Matin of Brewster, Wash- ington, recently conducted marksman- ship training while on a six-month de- ployment to the Westem Pacific Ocean with the l lth Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), embarked aboard the ships of the USS Tarawa Amphibious Ready Group (ARG). Marin and fellow Marines used the Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainers (ISMTs) installed aboard USS Tarawa and USS Denver to re- ceive realistic marksmanship and combat training through computer- ized interaction with targets projects on a big screen. Marin had to have his weapon loaded, charged and switched to fire just as if he was on the range. In addition, the IS MTs allowed mem- bers from Marin's unit to fire from four locations simultaneously in simulating a fire team. Marin's unit is an expeditionary intervention force with the ability to rapidly organize for combat opera- lions in virtually any environment. MEUs are composed of more than 2,000 personnel and are divided into an infantry battalion,' an aircraft squadron, a support group and a com- mand element. With the combination of these teams, Marin's unit supplies and sustains itself for either quick mission accomplishment or clearing the way for follow-on forces.
