11. Whether you like it or not, the soldiers and Marines need certain skills and training
before they are allowed to go and protect your right to say things like that.

These exercises happen about twice a year and are a very big deal. A lot of Marines hate it because we hate having to operate on US soil outside of base or training area.

Unfortunately, there aren't any bases with MOUT facilities that are big enough to accommodate this exercise, so we have to go off base.
