Cargo ship offloads vehicles onto landing craft, which takes its cargo and deposits it ashore. Much footage of personnel on the beach and vehicles driving out onto the sand. Great shots of LCACs (Landing Craft, Air-Cushioned) moving across the desert sand, back into the ocean. More shots of LCACs back at the mother ship, then traditional landing craft moving through the water. More vehicles and equipment being offloaded onto the beach. Marine Corps armored amphibious vehicles leave their mother ship. Shots of personnel and lifting equipment moving vehicles and supplies ashore.
