Australian children visited by “those Yanks from the boat”

Marines with the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit share a laugh with a young patient during a visit to the Sydney Children's Hospital, here, Aug. 19. Twenty Marines and Sailors of the 31st MEU and the USS Bonhomme Richard visited the hospital after completing the bilateral exercise Talisman Saber 2013. The service members interacted with children throughout the various hospital wards by playing games, painting, and talking to bedridden children. The 31st MEU is the Marine Corps' force in readiness in the Asia-Pacific region and is the only continuously forward-deployed MEU. (Official U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Jonathan G. Wright)
