ITX 2-17 (pics)

Editor's note:  Either they mislabeled these photos over at DVIDS or the Marine Corps was running exercises at Yuma, Kaneohe Bay and 29 Palms simultaneously.  Ordinarily that's no big deal.  Everyone goes out to play at the same time occasionally.  What makes this different is the label.  It's all ITX 2-17.  I can't determine the unit sizes at the different locations but it seems that the Marine Corps is doing distributed operations on a big scale across crazy distances.  If this is the future then we could see one Marine Expeditionary Brigade controlling units involved in  battles in three different continents.  If I'm reading this right that is.  I retain the right to be full of shit.
