Marines with combined anti-armor team conduct weapon familiarization training June 3 at the North Training Area at Combined Arms Training Center Camp Fuji. It was the first time for many of the Marines to fire the AT-4 light anti-armor weapon. The Marines are with the CAAT of Weapons Company, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, which is currently assigned to 4th Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, under the unit deployment program. The combat correspondent captured the photo at a shutter speed of 1/160th of a second, creating a multiple-exposure effect of the AT-4 gunner, as well as capturing the dust being shaken from the Marines’ helmets as a result of the shockwave created from the concussion of the weapon’s back-blast.

Brain Health Topics

Promoting brain health enables our effectiveness as a fighting force operationally. Mitigating the impact of traumatic brain injury, in all its forms, is a top priority for DOD as we focus on the near and long-term health of our Service members. Warfighter brain health represents the physical, psychological, and cognitive status that affect a warfighter’s capacity to function adaptively in any environment and impacts readiness, operational capability, and mission effectiveness.

The Warfighter Brain Health Initiative focuses on cognitive and physical performance, identification of known and emerging brain threats in military environments, and methods to immediately detect and treat brain injury.
