31st MEU ground forces begin talks with local populace

Lopez-Guillen (right), a military information support operations team leader and a native Santa Ana, Calif., both with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, speak with key leaders of a notional village as a part of Talisman Saber 2013 here, July 22. The engagement was one of many scenarios involved in Talisman Saber 13 that aim to provide the realistic and relevant training necessary to maintain regional security, peace and stability in the Asia Pacific region. The exercise also improves the Australian Defense Force and U.S. military's ability to operate as a combined task force. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps' force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward deployed MEU. (Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Codey Underwood)
