A couple of quotes:

“Marathon targets have a distinct advantage over static targets and pop-up targets. We’re able to fight against a realistic enemy, and we could see what they would do in battle, and adapt how we react to that. Marathon targets enable Reserve units, particularly those at remote sites, to bring capabilities not normally available to them: moving targets that provides egress and counterattack.” — USMC Major

“What is most unique this training is that its going to prepare all these Marines for going out of country because the enemies don’t stand still” — USMC Sgt
