  • Description

    Twelve-hundred Army troops have teamed up with the U.S. Navy and Marines for an amphibious landing exercise on the American West Coast at Camp Pendleton, California.

    The battalion-sized assault, utilizing the latest in amphibious vehicles, a far cry from the original "ducks" of World War II.

    Once ashore, the troops moved inland and secured their position. While some dug in, others set up command posts around portable radio sets powered by hand generators.

    As the troops maintained their positions inland, they were joined by tanks. Still later, on the beach, additional landing craft unloaded heavy equipment. Two huge construction cranes lumbered off one landing craft.
