U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Tyler Deckard, Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 263 (Reinforced), 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), corrosion control noncommissioned officer in charge and native of Bartlesville, Okla., touches up some chips and scratches in the paint of an MV-22 Osprey aircraft to protect the aircraft from corrosion aboard the USS Bataan (LHD 5). Many of the aircraft’s markings were hand painted or custom created by Deckard and other MEU Marines, including the squadron’s logo on the tail of the Ospreys. The MEU is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations with the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group as a sea-based, expeditionary crisis response force capable of conducting amphibious missions across the full range of military operations. - U.S. Marine Corps Sgt.
