Death from Below: 2nd LAAD Practices What They Preach

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C.  — For the last decade Marines have fought against terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan with battles primarily fought on the ground. So why do squads continue to carry the PL-87 Stinger missile and other anti-aircraft weapons with them during convoys?

Marines are known for being prepared for the worst, and that includes the possibility of battling enemy aircraft.

Hey everyone, As screwed up as this web site is, I need some info . I was talking to another Marine this past weekend and we were talking about the Liberty Bridge and Liberty Road between Phu-Loc (6) and An-Hoa. Anyone remember “The Alamo”? Where exactly was it located and why was it called the Alamo? Harry 1371
