Riverines host Family Day

Gunners Mate 1st Class Barry Brown, assigned to Riverine Squadron (RIVRON) 2, shows his sons a 50-caliber machine gun during Riverine Family Day at Munden Point Park, Virginia Beach, Va., June 29. More than 250 family and friends came out for the day to learn more about Riverine equipment and jobs Riverines perform. Riverines are the combat arms force of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command and merged with Maritime Expeditionary Security Force (MESF) to establish Coastal Riverine Force (CORIVFOR) June 1. CORIVFOR performs core maritime expeditionary security missions in the green and brown waters bridging the gap between traditional Navy blue water operations and land-based forces.
