PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Marine Lance Cpl. Pimpesan Supple, a Pittsfield native and graduate of Taconic High School, participated in a exercise at the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center.

Supple, a rifleman with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, provided security as fire team leader at the combat center in Twentynine Palms, Calif., on Feb. 4.

Marines were inserted two kilometers from Lava Training Area, where they had to fire and maneuver across rough terrain to an objective and set up defensive positions.

After defending the area for 36 hours, the infantrymen repelled an enemy night attack and executed a counterattack across five kilometers to conclude the three-day training exercise.

Supple graduated in 2011 from Taconic High, where he was on the wrestling team.
