Role-players play chess to pass the time as Marines with 1st Platoon, Company K, Battalion Landing Team 3/8, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit, meet with village elders during cultural awareness training as part of Realistic Urban Training at Fort A.P Hill, Va. June 10, 2010. The Marines came to the village to meet with community elders and find out what needs the community had.

The urban environment is among the most challenging tactical environments MEU Marines may face during their scheduled deployment later this fall.
