Frank Donovan, far left, the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit commanding officer, discusses the amphibious capabilities of his MEU to Ambassador Sam Kaplan, the U.S. ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco, during a visit aboard the ship here, April 16, 2012, in the final days of Exercise African Lion 12. African Lion is a bi-lateral training exercise between U.S. forces, including the 24th MEU, and Royal Moroccan Armed Forces to promote partnership and mutual understanding between each nation’s militaries. The 24th MEU, along with the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group, is currently deployed as a theater security and crisis response force capable of a variety of missions from full-scale combat to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
