1st Lt. Austin Finnell (left) and Cpl. Jon Philips peer through an opening while conducting a raid during the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Combined Arms Exercise at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., June 12, 2016. A raid is an operation, usually small scale, involving a swift penetration of hostile territory to secure information, confuse the enemy, or to destroy his installations. MEUCAX is conducted to maintain a high level of combat readiness prior to the 11th MEU’s Western Pacific 16-2 deployment later this year. Finnell is an infantry officer and Philips is a light armored vehicle repairer; both are with LAR Company, Battalion Landing Team 1st Bn., 4th Marines, 11th MEU.
