Members of one of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s fire control teams establish an observation post prior to calling in close-air support during a live-fire exercise here March 29. The FCT from 1st Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, or Anglico, set up its post by establishing communication with multiple entities, getting the direction and distance to targets at the range and verifying their own location. The MEU’s 18-man Anglico detachment can direct and control fixed or rotary wing aircraft or call in indirect fire from artillery batteries, naval guns and mortar teams. The training was part of the MEU’s larger Marine air-ground task force exercise that runs through April 9.
