Lance Cpl. Luke Browne hits a training pad with a baton after being sprayed with Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) spray during a security augmentation force (SAF) training event Oct. 11, 2018 on Camp Kinser, Okinawa, Japan. The SAF Marines practiced detainee handling procedures and non-lethal weapons tactics after being sprayed with OC spray in order to learn how to effectively function and provide security while being affected by the spray. SAF Marines are trained to augment and assist base security forces across Marine Corps Base Camp Butler. Browne, a native of Burlington, Michigan, is a warehouse clerk with Supply Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 35, 3rd Marine Logistics Group.
