INDIAN OCEAN (July 20, 2015) U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. Peter Pearson, left, prepares to search a simulated casualty for explosives as combat cargo Marines carry the injured aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Essex (LHD 2). Pearson is an explosives ordnance disposal technician with Combat Logistics Battalion 15, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Combat cargo Marines offloaded simulated casualties from an aircraft and brought them to the Essex’s medical staff for further care. Elements of the 15th MEU, based out of Camp Pendleton, California, and embarked aboard the Essex, are conducting naval operations in the 6th Fleet area of operations in support of U.S. national security interests in Europe and Africa.
