U.S. Marine Gunnery Sgt. Carlos Aguilera, a platoon sergeant with Echo Company, 1st Light Armored Battalion, and 31-year-old native of Los Angeles, works out using portable suspension training equipment during an overnight post here, April 26, 2012. Due to the high operational tempo required of Echo Co., Aguilera and his fellow Marines have spent nearly their entire deployment on the road.
