Marines sit in the defense and decorate their new home for the next few days. The Marines had assaulted multiple objectives and consolidated to emplace a large defense involving multiple supporting agencies including artillery, close air support, and crew served weapons. Logos on the decorations include “Trump 2020” and “Make the field great again”. During extended periods of no action in a defensive position, everyone finds a way to entertain themselves. Pictured is the standard issue M4A2 Service Rifle with the Trijicon RCO ACOG and PEQ-16 laser and flashlight combo with a Magpul MOE grip, and the newly issued Magpul Gen 3 PMAG.
