Marines with Bravo Company, 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, prepare to launch a zodiac from the USS Freedom during on and off loading drills three miles off the coast of Del Mar beach Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., March 10, 2014. The purpose of the training was to find out if the Marines could launch and recover a zodiac, a small inflatable boat with a hand steered engine, onto a littoral combat ship. They discovered that using the LCS gave them the ability to insert and recover reconnaissance teams from a greater distance out at sea.
