June 22, 1978: Marine Reservists during a training amphibious landing at Coronado capture one spectator — a Navy specialist getting some rays after planting dummy explosives.

More than 700 Leatherneck Reservists from eight states came ashore during their annual two-week training. They spent a full week in amphibious training before the simulated landing.

Five Marine landing photos by Los Angeles Times staff photographer Robert Lachman were published the next day. Four photos were used on an inside page and the other on Page One.
