Marines with Company E., Battalion Landing Team 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, quickly move to their first event in a squad competition here, Jan. 11 at Camp Hansen. Nine squads competed in events designed to test physical endurance, hand-to-hand combat, teamwork and knowledge. The competition also builds morale and cohesion throughout the squads. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps’ force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and the only continuously forward-deployed MEU.
