  • U.S. Marines assist Japanese medical
service members from the Japan Self-Defense Force onto an MV-22B Osprey headed to Tacloban Air Base, an area severely damaged by Typhoon Haiyan,
during Operation Damayan at Villamor Air Base Nov. 14. The U.S. and
Philippine Armed Forces have delivered more than 107,00 pounds of relief
supplies, 140 relief and aid workers and more than 160 displaced personnel.
For decades, the militaries of the U.S. and Philippines have partnered
together to train and prepare for crisis response. The Osprey provides a
unique capability in this type of operation due to its vertical takeoff and
landing capabilities and its ability to convert quickly to fixed wing
configuration, giving it increased speed and range. More than 300 personnel
from 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade have deployed in support of the
efforts being orchestrated by the Government of the Philippines. (U.S.
