Marines clean veterans’ cemetery during PHIBLEX 14 [Image 3 of 6]
An unknown headstone marks the gravesite of a fallen service member at the Clark Veterans Cemetery, Clark, Pampanga, Republic of the Philippines. “Throughout the wars there have been lots of unknown graves filled with bodies of service members that have fallen; however, even though we might not know their names, it is imperative that they are remembered and honored,” said Navy Lt. Stephen F. Brown, chaplain for 3d Marine Expeditionary Brigade, III Marine Expeditionary Force. “That could have been any of us, and as service members we should give the love that we would like to receive if it was us.” Brown is in the Philippines conducting Amphibious Landing Exercise 2014. PHIBLEX 14 is an exercise designed to improve Philippine-U.S. interoperability, increase readiness, and enhance the ability for a bilateral force to respond to natural disasters or other regional contingencies.
