    Corps’ amphibious roots on display

    Amphibious assault has long been a part of Marine Corps tradition, demonstrated first during the landing at New Providence Island, Bahamas, in 1776 and utilized during many major conflicts of World War II and the Korean War.

    “Our nation’s amphibious capability remains the Corps’ priority. In the complex security environment we face, the execution of amphibious operations requires the use of the sea and maneuver space,” said Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps during a recent press release. Below, an amphibious assault vehicle carrying elements of Company G, Battalion Landing Team, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, demonstrates the Corps’ unique capability when it charged onto Freshwater Beach in Queensland, Australia, during Exercise Talisman Sabre 2011.
