March 2017 - Marines with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit Maritime Raid Force don their parachutes, load, and jump for a night air insertion during Realistic Urban Training (RUT) at Twentynine Palms. The 15th MEU’s rapid ability to mobilize people and equipment makes the amphibious force uniquely postured to respond to any mission at a moment’s notice.
RUT is a land-based exercise that provides an opportunity to integrate unique skills and develop the MEU’s collective proficiency in challenging and unfamiliar environments.
