I’m Corporal Michael Parks with your Marine Minute.
Marines with Special Reaction Team recently conducted marksman-observer training on Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan. The training provided SRT, with Marine Corps Installations Pacific Provost Marshal’s Office, the opportunity to sharpen their precision-rifle skills, preparing the team for any situation that is above the capabilities of normal law enforcement.
Also in the Corps,
Marines from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Units finally returned home after a successful exercise Trident Juncture 18 in Iceland and Norway, December 1. The exercise allowed Marines to enhance their capabilities as a sea-based Marine Air Ground Task Force in a unique environment.
On this day in Marine Corps History in 1944,
Marine air assets of the 1st and 2nd Marine Aircraft Wings arrived in the Philippines to support Army forces.
