The Marines of the 11th's Amphibious Assault Vehicle Platoon prepare to launch their vehicles for the partially-submersible lower deck of the USS Denver. The vehicles, known as AAV's or amtracks, convert from lumbering watercraft to armored personnel carriers when they reach the beach. Famously uncomfortable for their passengers, they saw a great deal of service during the invasion transporting Marines from Kuwait to Baghdad.
