    The Brazilian military delegation flew in a MV-22B Osprey, observed an Assault Amphibious Vehicle demonstration and a static display of Marine capabilities and equipment. This official tour was by personal invitation from Maj. Gen. John Croley. Brazil has the second largest Marine Corps in South America.

    In addition to their stop at Camp Lejeune, Admiral Guimaraes and his delegation visited other U.S. military bases on the East Coast.
