31st MEU inserts battalion-sized force for Exercise Koolendong 13

Marines and Sailors with Company E., Battalion Landing Team 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, offload from a MV-22 Osprey with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), also with the 31st MEU, as a part of Exercise Koolendong 13 here, Aug. 31. The 31st MEU moved a battalion-sized force more than 300 miles inland to conduct a live-fire training exercise. Also participating in the exercise is the Marine Rotational Force – Darwin and soldiers of the 5th Royal Australian Army. The exercise reinforces why the 31st MEU is the force of choice for the Asia-Pacific region. The 31st MEU brings what it needs to sustain itself to accomplish the mission or to pave the way for follow-on forces. The size and composition of the 31st MEU makes it well suited for amphibious operations, which includes raids, assaults, evacuations and humanitarian assistance operations.
