An A/V-8B Harrier lands on the flight deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer in the Pacific Ocean, June 12, 2013. The Boxer is conducting predeployment training during Dawn Blitz, a scenario-driven exercise led by U.S. 3rd Fleet and 1st Marine Expeditionary Force to test participants in the planning and execution of amphibious operations.

Corporal Gabriel S. Guzman, a reconnaissance man serving with 1st Reconnaissance Battalion, receives the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal.

Guzman, a 20-year-old native of Riverside, Calif., was awarded for aiding severely injured victims of a vehicle accident on June 8, 2012. Guzman was travelling with other Marines in Dougherty County, Ga., when they witnessed a head-on collision directly in front of them on Alabama Highway 165. Without hesitation, Guzman and other Marines pulled over and administered first aid. Together, they treated three victims suffering from burns, a neck injury and severe bleeding. Local law enforcement confirmed one victim would have likely died without the Marines’ assistance.
