Mobility on the battlefield remains one of the hallmarks of Marine engineers therefore adapting to changing environments and conditions is crucial to mission accomplishment.  The MCES Maintenance platoon did just that while serving as the labor force for a Mobility Matting Demonstration aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune on 15 April 2015.  Deschamps Mat Systems, the Maker of MobiMat, a matting system used by the USMC aviation community for expedient Helicopter Landing Zones (HLZ), provided a demonstration of some new products aimed at mobility in soft terrain.

The Marines of the Maintenance platoon not only provided heavy equipment (HE), the heavy equipment operators (Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 1345) to load and unload the rolls of matting, the Medium Tactical Vehicle Replacements (MTVRs) and drivers (MOS 3531) to test the trafficability of the systems on the different terrains; they served as the labor force to employ the matting.  LCpl Bailey operates the TRAM while Cpl Regier stabilizes the matting on the ground.

Rolling the mats out, staking them down, then recovering the mats after they had been driven over multiple times proved to be quite challenging.  GySgt Damren and Cpl Regier pull the straps while other Marines and contractors push the roll.

MCES held their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony on 24 April 2015 to honor and show appreciation to those who have dedicated their time to supporting our program. Being involved brings added benefits to our Marines and family members while building a positive, proactive community. The MCES volunteers have helped with baking, cooking, creating flyers, planning, coordinating and executing events. It is estimated that the volunteers have dedicated over 350 hours of their time to help support the MCES family readiness program through programs such as cookie drops, the holiday party and decorating the barracks for the holidays. Thank you MCES volunteers for all you do.

Paul Albaugh, a training specialist with the Marine Corps Engineer School, explains to Marines with Alpha Company, 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, the importance of using a Compact Metal Detector during a week-long Counter-IED course aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C., March 2-5, 2015. Albaugh said that CIED is essential to 2nd CEB’s mission accomplishment because improvised explosive devices aren’t just centralized to Afghanistan, but are a global threat and will continue to be a global threat so having effective tactics, techniques and procedures in place is important.

A holley stick is a long metal rod utilized by combat engineer Marines that allows them to feel for any wires that are attached to an IED. It is implemented by scraping along the ground and entrances to compounds for trip wires that could detonate any IEDs. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl Krista James/Released)
