    I'm Sergeant Annika Moody with your Marine Minute.

    The first Marine Expeditionary Force Support Battalion in the Marine Corps was activated during a ceremony at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina February 9th. The new battalion is designed to provide and coordinate combat-service support, as well as security and administrative services to the MEF Command Element or Marine Expeditionary Brigade Command Element and MEF Information Group in order to sustain command and control of Marine Air-Ground Task Force operations.

    Also in the Corps,

    Marines with Fox Company, 4th Tank Battalion, 4th Marine Division, tested their ability to conduct operations in deep snow and the extreme cold weather conditions of northern Michigan, during exercise Winter Break 2018. The exercise takes place at Camp Grayling, Michigan and was the first time that the Lejeune based tank company conducted training designed specifically to improve their ability to operate in cold weather environments.

    Gunnery Sgt. Kyle Lloyd, the master gunner for Fox Company, 4th Tank Battalion, 4th Marine Division said, "It tasks us to an environment the Marines don't normally operate in."
