Artillery Marines from BLT 1/9 received an opportunity to shoot several howitzers while training along with the French Army and further learn artillery call-for-fire procedures. The 24th MEU Marines performed a series of sustainment and joint exercises alongside the French and Djibouti armed service members while in Djibouti. The 24th MEU is currently on a seven month deployment aboard Nassau Amphibious Ready Group vessels as the theater reserve force for Central Command. Photo by Sgt. Alex C. Sauceda
