CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — The II Marine Expeditionary Force and 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing kicked off a large-force training operation, dubbed Exercise Mailed Fist, June 18.
“This is a pretty rare occurrence so we’re very lucky to be able to take advantage of this,” Foster said. “Usually when platoons move your talking only two helicopters; here were utilizing up to 10 aircraft to move nearly 500 Marines in three different waves.”
