    You voted, and July's photo of the month comes from Cpl. Michael Petersheim and his fellow Devil Dogs from 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment. Cpl. Petersheim took the photo on a 120 plus degree day in Kuwait. He wanted to show the family members of the 24th MEU what their Marines are up to on a day-to-day basis — getting the job done no matter how hot or dry it is. "I think the fans liked it because it shows Marines doing their jobs and getting it done the right way," he said. "No better friend. No worse enemy."

    Cpl. Jacob Johnson, an anti-tank missileman with Combined Anti-Armor Team One, Weapons Company, Battalion Landing Team 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, supervises his Marines fire a Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire command-link guided, or TOW, Missile System, as it's fired from an M-41 Saber weapon system during sustainment training at Udairi Range in Kuwait, July 10, 2012. The 24th MEU is deployed with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group as a U.S. Central Command theater reserve force providing support for maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.
