A Marine with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, refuses to allow a puddle of water from keeping him from completing his part of the job. Marines used a strategy known as buddy rushing while taking an enemy machine-gun nest at Shooting Range 6, Feb. 11, 2013. Buddy rushing is when one Marine fires at enemy targets while another Marine runs ahead a few yards before stopping and telling the first Marine to move forward while he fires at targets. The live-fire exercise gave new Marines in the squad an opportunity to learn their job and how the other Marines work together whenever completing a mission. Without unit cohesion the squad will struggle to accomplish mission objectives while on deployment.
