Javeline Thrust 2010 now just a memory for 24th Marines


Marines with 1st Battalion, 24th Marines will head back to their Selfridge, Mich., headquarters Saturday after working their seats off for two weeks in Javeline Thrust 2010.

More than 4,500 Marines from air, ground and logistics units participated in the exercise, the largest Marine Forces Reserve exercise of the year. It took place between the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, Calif., and the Hawathorn Weapons Army Depot in Hawthorn, Nev.

The terrain, with elevations ranging from 4,000 to 10,000 feet over a 180-square-mile area, simulated conditions in Afghanistan, minus actual Taliban fighters.

  2. Just came across this website and noticed this article yes its old but I couldn’t believe it was in here. I was there in 2010 feels like ages ago though, also feels like a waste because our deployment was cancelled but atleast the training was good.
