A corpsman with 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines (Reinforced), the ground combat element of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, prepares to apply an IV to a simulated downed pilot during a Tactical Recovery of Aircraft and Personnel training operation aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., Mar. 12. After a CH-53E Super Stallion with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 163 (Reinforced) inserted them into the training area, the Marines searched for the downed pilot with limited mobility, provided first aid, and quickly evacuated him and departed by the aircraft. During their upcoming deployment this summer with the 11th MEU, 2/1 Marines will need to be proficient in recuperating personnel and/or aircraft in potentially hostile situations.
