    A Moroccan soldier provides security as a section of MV-22 Ospreys prepare to land and insert a contingent of Marines as reinforcement May 20 in the Tifnit, Morocco training area. A tilt-rotor insertion with security was one of several demonstrations for general officers from participating countries. The DV day was designed to allow observation of what had been accomplished during the week-long training at the camp as a part of Exercise African Lion 2015. Exercise African Lion 15 is an annually-scheduled, combined U.S.–Moroccan exercise designed to improve mutual understanding of each nation’s tactics, techniques and procedures while demonstrating the strong bond between the two nation’s militaries. The one-week exercise includes various types of military training, including a command post exercise; stability operations, such as nonlethal weapons training and crisis/disaster response training. Additionally, in February an intelligence capacity building seminar was conducted.
