A U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Isaac Paddock, shipboard firefighting instructor, instructs U.S. Marines from the 31st Marine Expeditionary Wing on Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Japan, at an aircraft fire simulator on Kadena Air Base, Japan, May 8, 2015. To prepare for shipboard deployments, every Marine and sailor must meet training qualifications.
