Combat Logistics Regiment 3, 3rd Marine Logistics Group, stages the equipment offloaded from the S.S. Maj. Stephen W. Pless, a U.S. Navy Military Sealift Command Maritime Prepositioning ship, in Laem Cha Bang, Thailand, Jan. 28. The vehicles and equipment were then transported by tractor-trailer 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.
