Amphibious Training At Camp Lejeune

The goal is to search for mines and explosives so tanks can pass safely, delivering troops the goods they need.

The Breacher Vehicles are new to Camp Lejeune and the Marine Corps itself, the troops at Lejeune have only been practicing on them for a year, perfecting how they work before taking them overseas.

They work by pushing obstacles out of the way, anything from breaches to ditches to wires, and explosives so an assault force can move through and better protect troops.

Detecting mines and some types of explosives, used to be done by troops themselves with mine probes and detectors, but these 2 man tanks are much more safe.

    Former NCSU basketball player Charles Shackleford should be leading this training, I assume.
