Japanese soldiers with the Western Army Infantry Regiment, Japanese Ground Self Defense Force, conduct amphibious training at Naval Amphibious Base Coronado, Jan. 22. The JGSDF are here to participate in Exercise Iron Fist with the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, a unique training opportunity for both services. Boats are one of many amphibious means the Marine Corps uses to move troops ashore in an expeditionary manner. Marine Expeditionary Units are responsible to our nation as a 911 force in readiness.
