Exhaust flames erupt from a shallow rocket-disposal well during a static-fire range operation at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., Nov. 14, 2018. The well, essentially a partially buried steel pipe, allows for safe ignition of rocket propellant during the decommission of a small rocket. In total, six rocket engines were used during the Explosive Ordnance Disposal annual training exercise. During the training, EOD technicians removed explosives from the rockets, allowing them to be used safely in future demonstrations. In addition to the annual training, the Marines also conduct live-fire and static-fire range operations on a bi-weekly to monthly basis. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.

“Oscar,” a 75-foot Landing Craft Mechanized ship operated by U.S. Navy Sailors assigned to the Navy Boat Docks at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., gets placed back in the water after undergoing maintenance, Oct. 31, 2018. From top to bottom, the entire ship was refurbished at a commercial boat yard near Beaufort, N.C. From blasting the barnacles off the bottom, to applying multiple coats of paint and primer, to welding any dings and dents the boat has suffered throughout the past year; no blemish was overlooked.
