Cpl. Jason O'Hearn, land support company, Combat Logistics Regiment 3, guides a 7-ton truck onto a tractor-trailer Jan. 28 during the Maritime Prepositioning Force offload operation in Laem Cha Bang, Thailand. Once loaded onto the tractor-trailer that 7-ton along with all the other equipment was transported to the Arrival Assembly Operations Echelon to undergo limited technical inspection and scanning before being distributed to subordinate commands. The offload was part of preparations for Exercise Cobra Gold 2009 - a regularly scheduled joint/coalition multinational exercise that is the latest in the continuing series of U.S.-Thai military exercises designed to promote regional peace and stability in the region.
