CAMP BLUE DIAMOND, RAMADI, Iraq - Lance Cpl. Jason M. Crawford, a tactical data network specialist, with Headquarters Battalion, 2nd Marine Division is helping keep Marines in the region safe from both the insurgency and each other with the aid of the Blue Force Tracker. The global positioning system allows Crawford to monitor all administrative and logistical convoys traveling through the Al Anbar province. He uses the information he gathers from the tracking system to coordinate medical aid to Marines attacked by insurgents and to inform other Marines manning checkpoints and guard posts of the convoy's arrival in their area reducing the chance of mistaken identity.
