Marines from 2nd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion conducted a live-fire exercise during pre-deployment work-ups in April.

The demonstration included firing stinger missiles at remote control aircraft flying around Onslow Beach, N.C.  The Marines are part of a group of nearly 2,200 from the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit who are scheduled to deploy to the Mediterranean in late summer.
