3rd MEB provides additional support to Philippines

Chief Warrant Officer Allen T. Leiper uses cargo nets to secure palletized equipment Nov. 11 at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma, Okinawa, Japan. The equipment was later loaded onto a KC-130J Hercules aircraft to be used during humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations in the Philippines in the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan. The typhoon has impacted more than 4.2 million people across 36 provinces in the Philippines, according to the Philippine government’s national disaster risk reduction and management council.
