    U.S. Marine Cpl. John Bauer (left), a water purification specialist with Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force - Southern Command, and U.S. Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Rodney Fils-Julien (right), a corpsman with SPMAGTF-SC, test water to see if it's potable during a disaster relief scenario during UNITAS LX at Ilha da Marambia, Brazil, Aug. 27, 2019. This equipment is used for supporting humanitarian assistance and disaster relief scenarios to provide potable water. UNITAS is the world's longest-running, annual exercise and brings together multinational forces from 11 countries to include Brazil, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, Panama, Paraguay, Mexico, Great Britain and the United States. The exercise focuses in strengthening the existing regional partnerships and encourages establishing new relationships through the exchange of maritime mission-focused knowledge and expertise during multinational training operations. The task force is conducting training and engineering projects hand-in-hand with partner nation military members in Latin America and the Caribbean during their deployment, which coincides with hurricane season. Bauer is a native of Cleveland, Ohio and Fils-Julien is a native of Bethesda, Maryland. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Stanley Moy)
