4 Nov 2009 | Lance Cpl. Melissa A. Latty

Naval officers aboard Camp Al Taqaddum, Iraq, conducted a six-mile hike, a requirement to receive their Fleet Marine Force Qualified Officer Pins, Oct. 31.

To achieve this qualification, the Naval officers are attending classes on subjects such as Marine Corps and Navy history, the organization of the Marine Corps and its mission, to include land navigation, communications, combat elements and weapons.

The hike is just one of the crucial steps the sailors must complete in order to receive their pin; an honor available to only those sailors who serve side-by-side with Marines.
