Osprey Drop Off
Marines with Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response take cover from depris blasted by an MV-22B Osprey after being dropped off July 29, 2013, before a bilateral live-fire training event with the Spanish army at the Principe Training Camp in Spain. The bilateral event took place from July 29 to Aug. 1 and served to sustain marksmanship proficiency and build enduring relationships between militaries. The Marines and sailors of SP-MAGTF Crisis Response provide a limited-defense crisis response capability in support of U.S. and partner-nation security interests within their area of responsibility and also participate in training events with regional partners. The unit is temporarily postured in Spain.
