SAVANETA, Aruba (Nov. 13, 2020) U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Joseph Deblaay, a reconnaissance Marine with C Company, 2nd Reconnaissance Battalion (Recon Bn.), 2nd Marine Division (MARDIV), ascends from the water while participating in a dive training with Dutch marines with the 32nd Raiding Squadron near Netherlands Marine Barracks Savaneta, Aruba, Nov. 13, 2020. These dive skills are critical when fighting in littoral and coastal regions. 2nd Recon Bn's mastery of these skills is paramount to integrate effectively with their naval counterparts to win the next major conflict. Being able to learn from the Dutch marines in their primary area of operation helps 2nd Recon Bn. build a faster, more mobile and more lethal force when operating in diverse locations.
