MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. -- Staff Sgt. Samuel J. Galan Jr. and Lance Cpl. Gerald J. Demontmollin III refuel a UH-1Y Venom Feb. 24, 2016, at Camp Pendleton. Demontmollin and his squadron performed simulated assault and close air support training to maintain unit readiness. “We can shut the aircraft down and turn the engines off [and then fuel the aircraft]. That’s called cold refueling. What we did today was hot refueling. We can leave the aircraft running while we fuel, getting us ready to get back in the fight,” said 1st Lt. David W. Few, a UH-1Y Venom copilot with Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 169, Marine Aircraft Group 39, 3rd Marine Air Wing. Galan, a native of Houston, Texas, is a crew chief with HMLA-169. Demontmollin, from Grass Valley is a crew chief with HMLA-169.  (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Justin E. Bowles/Released)
