Company E Marines disembark to a waiting point April 3 at Castle Airport as the helicopter that brought them here lines up for fuel from a KC-130 refueler. Twelve helicopters, eight transporting infantrymen, stopped here during the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit's recent air-ground task force exercise. The infantrymen, who were en route to a simulated raid, serve with the MEU's ground-combat element, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, aka the Magnificent Bastards.
