Four camouflaged Marines hide in the brush during a training exercise at Camp Pendleton. Nearer to camera at right, 2 soldiers converse with one another. Both hold onto their bayonets as they begin to camouflage themselves with twigs. Behind and to the left of them, 2 more soldiers have made more progress in camouflaging themselves. Their bayonets are staked into the ground in front of them. All four men dress in their combat uniforms and have dirt spread over their faces. A thicket of brush surrounds them.
