Images: US Marines, Australian Defence Force share history through unit patch [Image 2 of 2]
The unit patch of one of Australia’s military outfits reflect a history of shed blood with the U.S. Marines. The patch, which incorporates elements of the U.S. 1st Marine Division logo, is in part due to Damien Parer, and his sacrifice. The 1st Joint Public Affairs Unit of Canberra, Australia Capital Territory, makes up half of the Combined Joint Information Bureau in Rockhampton, Queensland, during Talisman Sabre 2011. The remainders are U.S. Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. Talisman Sabre 2011 is an exercise designed to train U.S. and Australian forces to plan and conduct combined task force operations to improve combat readiness and interoperability on a variety of missions from conventional conflict to peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance efforts.
