    I'm Corporal Troy Saunders with your Marine Minute.

    U.S. Marines and sailors assigned to Task Force Koa Moana are currently taking part in Exercise Koa Moana in areas around the Indo-Pacific region. Koa Moana is designed to enhance regional theater-security cooperation between allied and partner nations with a collective interest in building military-to-military relations.

    Marines with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit recently conducted fast rope training aboard USS Essex while underway in the Arabian Gulf. The training is designed to maintain expert level readiness in air mobility techniques while providing maritime security in the U.S. 5th Fleet Area of Operations.

    This week in Marine Corps history in 1950 during the Korean War,
    Chinese Communist forces launched a surprise attack on 1st Marine Division Marines at the Chosin Reservoir area. Following a brutal 17 - day battle in freezing weather where Marines found themselves outnumbered and overwhelmed, they eventually fought back and the battle entered Marine Corps lore as an example of the toughness and resolve of the Corps.
