It has to be a thing of beauty to work at this place. It’s like being in Santa’s North Pole toy factory. Everyday. And getting paid for it. That’s what it feels like for U.S. Marines at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center at 29 Palms, California, who get to test new equipment and concepts provided by the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory.
The Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory’s mission is to identify future challenges and opportunities, and to develop them into war fighting concepts. It also is charged with exploring options in order to inform the combat development process to meet the challenges of the future operating environment. It other words, its mission is to create cool stuff, and the leathernecks at 29 Palms are in charge of trying them. Not a bad job huh?
