    With the exception of the helmets they look fairly squared away. All in the same uniform/webbing, M-16's, M-113's. It's just too bad they can't do a damn thing about Hezzbulla.

    Fort Pickett, Va. (Jan. 23, 2007) - Sailors assigned to Riverine Squadron One (RIVRON-1) participate in a combat evolution, during a unit level training exercise. RIVRON-1 is part of the newly formed Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC). NECC integrates all warfighting requirements for expeditionary combat and combat support elements. This transformation allows for standardized training, manning and equipping of Sailors who will participate in the global war on terrorism as part of the joint force. It also results in more capable, responsive and effective expeditionary Sailors. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Mandy McLaurin
