A Marine with Engineer Detachment, Combat Logistics Group 26, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, cuts and shapes C4 into a diamond shape to cut through three-inch solid steel during a demolitions range at Realistic Urban Training aboard Fort A.P. Hill, Va. June 9, 2010. The shape of the explosive material determines the type of damage caused. This was just one of many courses conducted during the 18-day Realistic Urban Training Exercises the MEU will participate in as part of its pre-deployment training. The urban environment is among the most challenging tactical environments MEU Marines may face during their scheduled deployment later this fall.
