Jared Hunter, a mortarman with Weapons Co., 3/3, administers the dog fluids before beginning Exercise Clear, Hold, Build 4 on Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., Sept. 26, 2011. During the evolution, the Marines of 3/3 transitioned from clearing a village’s enemy threat to re-building rapport with its citizens. The counterinsurgency training, part of the Enhanced Mojave Viper exercise, marked the completion of seven months of pre-deployment training for “America’s Battalion.” Next month, they will deploy to Afghanistan to support combat operations in Helmand province. Montez, 20, is from Lewiston, Idaho. Hunter, 21, is from Dyersburg, Tenn.
