15th MEU Marines have shocking experience
Cpl. Joshua Mann, a rifleman with 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit’s Battalion Landing Team, endures the pain of the HEMI/X-26E Taser during a three-day Non-Lethal Weapons Course aboard amphibious assault ship USS America (LHA 6), Dec. 20, 2017. The course taught Marines how to properly implement the weapon systems and provided the Marines with the confidence and knowledge to push through the effects of the non-lethal weapons. The 15th MEU and America Amphibious Ready Group are deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of maritime security operations to reassure allies and partners, and to preserve the freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce in the region.
