A role player harasses 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit Marines as they try to quell a restless crowd of hungry African villagers. Members of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit trained for several missions Aug. 16-17, including humanitarian assistance operations, noncombatant evacuation operations and mass casualty evacuations. The MEU is currently at sea until Aug. 21 conducting their certification exercise, the final piece of their training before deploying later this year. Most of the role players in the humanitarian assistance training were actual African refugees now living in the San Diego area.
