USS PELELIU (April 28, 2013) Lance Cpl. John-Paul Hethcock, rifleman, Security Platoon, Maritime Raid Force, 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, rows during the Campbell Cup held in the gym of USS Peleliu, April 28. The challenge was the final competition of the Campbell Cup, a competition that brought teams from within the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit and Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group against each other. This two-night event pitted the Command Element’s team against Kilo Company’s team in a showdown for the coveted Campbell Cup. The 15th MEU is deployed as part of the Peleliu Amphibious Ready Group and is comprised of approximately 2,400 Marines and sailors. Together with Amphibious Squadron Three, they provide a forward-deployed, flexible sea-based Marine Air Ground Task Force capable of conducting a wide variety of operations ranging from humanitarian aid to combat. Hethcock, 20, is from Virginia Beach, Va. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. John Robbart III/Released)
