Col. Patrick Gramuglia, commanding officer of Marine Aircraft Group 16, from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, left, tries his hand at applying dust reduction agent, assisted by Cpl. David Spier, a heavy equipment operator from Baltimore, assigned to Marine Wing Support Squadron 374, from Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, Calif., during field exercise to maintain remote helicopter landing zones for continued safe use. Marines from MWSS 374 sprayed the surface with a dust control compound in advance of Gramuglia's arrival aboard MV-22B Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, to evaluate effectiveness of the product.
