Members of Marine Attack Squadron 513 spent a morning shooting one another with paintball guns on the station’s paintball field, Aug. 3. The stress relieving activity was sponsored by Arizona Adventures, allowing Marines to blow off some steam while blowing each other away with high velocity paintballs. Teams of up to 15 Marines stormed across the field, using obstacles for cover as they pelted their opponents. It also gave the Marines a chance to practice some close quarter combat maneuvers while under fire, and a few paid the price with lots of paint and a little pain.
