CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. (Sept. 16, 2016) A landing craft air cushion vehicle with Assault Craft Unit 4 embarked aboard USS Bataan (LHD 5) approaches the coast during a ship to shore deployment as part of their PHIBRON/MEU integration training at Onslow Beach, North Carolina. During a ship to shore, LCAC's vacate the ship from miles off the coast to come ashore and transport Marines with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit and their equipment back to the vessel. PMINT will help Marines become accustom to working and living with their Navy counterparts on ship, preparing them for their upcoming deployment.
