Marines assigned to Combined Anti-Armor Team 2, Weapons Company, Battalion Landing Team 1/4, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), fire TOW missile systems from joint light tactical vehicles during a theater amphibious combat rehearsal (TACR), in Tabuk, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, March 7. TACR integrates U.S. Navy and Marine Corps assets to practice and rehearse a range of critical combat-related capabilities available to U.S. Central Command, both afloat and ashore, to promote stability and security in the region. The 15th MEU is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and Pacific through the Western Indian Ocean and three strategic choke points.
