Gunfighting Recon Marines

Gunfighting Recon Marines

Over a 48 hour period, the 15th MEU/PELARG team conducted offensive air operations in Afghanistan resulting in the deaths of 5 confirmed enemy fighters, provided disaster relief in Pakistan to 120 victims who had been without aid since July, and seized a pirated vessel, rescuing a crew of 11 hostages and detaining 9 suspected pirates off the coast of Somalia.  A busy couple of days and an impressive battle-rhythm by any standard for this dynamic Navy-Marine Corps team.  The Magellan Star: Pirate Takedown, Force Recon Style by Capt.
