Marines assigned to Battalion Landing Team (BLT) 3/2, 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), gain entry through a simulated door after using demolition to breach it, filling the air with smoke at Fort Pickett, Va., Sept. 18, 2012. The Marines worked in six-man teams placing charges in order to gain entry through locked doors and closed windows and learned to how to minimize the risks involved with breaching rooms. This training is part of the 26th MEU's pre-deployment training program. BLT 3/2 is one of the three reinforcements of 26th MEU, which is slated to deploy in 2013.
