Everett Whitman, an infantry rifleman with Battalion Landing Team, 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), and a native of Rock Springs, Wyoming, holds security on the roof during a simulated embassy reinforcement at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, Dec. 10, 2020. An embassy reinforcement exercise involves complex scenarios to prepare Marines for missions in support of the Department of State. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform a wide range of military operations as the premier crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific region.
