Corporal Michael Beck, an electrician with Combat Logistics Battalion 15, 1st Marine Logistics Group, provides water to a crowd of role-players during a humanitarian aid exercise as part of CLB-15’s pre-deployment training taught by the Special Operations Training Group, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force, aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., July 16, 2014. The exercise took place over the course of three days, and provided CLB-15 with a realistic and immersive experience. The simulation, set up by SOTG with the help of the USAID, put CLB-15’s Marines and sailors in the middle of a typhoon-ravaged rural Philippine area where they were tasked with providing humanitarian aid and disaster relief, similar to the situation faced by Marines with the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force during the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. CLB-15 is slated to deploy with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, 1st Marine Expeditionary Force.
