Middle School teens from the Department of Defense bases around South Maryland and Virginia participated in L.I.N.K.S. for Teens at the Naval Surface Facility Indian Head, Md., June 30, 2016. The event was hosted by Chemical, Biological, Incident Response Force, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Command, and Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall. The Teens participated in seven different stations related to the physical and mental preparation a Marine goes under on a daily basis. The teens learned various different skills to build teamwork and camaraderie between peers, as well as the core values of the Marines and goals for the future. CBIRF is an active duty Marine Corps unit that, when directed, forward-deploys and/or responds with minimal warning to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive (CBRNE) threat or event in order to assist local, state, or federal agencies and the geographic combatant commanders in the conduct of CBRNE response or consequence management operations, providing capabilities for command and control; agent detection and identification; search, rescue, and decontamination; and emergency medical care for contaminated personnel.

Sergeant Austen Clark, the hot zone controller for the Search and Extraction Platoon, helps one of his Marines fasten and secure his gas mask before completing the final exercise of the afternoon during Exercise Scarlet Response 2015 at Guardian Centers in Perry, Georgia, July 21. The hot zone is the area where an incident occurs. Clark makes sure he keeps accountability of everything that goes on when his Marines go in and search a building, such as their gear, if there are any casualties inside or if there are any further issues besides what they already know. - Sergeant Austen Clark, the hot zone controller for the Search and Extraction Platoon, helps one of his Marines fasten and secure his gas mask before completing the final exercise of the afternoon during Exercise Scarlet Response 2015 at Guardian Centers in Perry, Georgia, July 21.
