    Marine Rotational Force - Darwin

    U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Brendan Mulcahy, the assistant logistics officer for Marine Rotational Force – Darwin Darwin, is one of the many Marines planning MRF-D 2020 at Larrakeyah Barracks in Darwin, Australia. A Fairfax, Va., native, Mulcahy performs a variety of duties including coordinating the movement of Marines and equipment from ship to shore and to forward operating bases.

    “I’m actually a military brat, so I grew up traveling all over. My childhood was a lot different for someone who grew up in just one place. The military has always been a part of my life. If I were to sum up my job, I would say I am the Amazon for the Marine Corps. Someone requests something, and I ask the question ‘how do we provide that service?’ With MRF-D, there are a lot of moving parts. There are a lot of agencies, and units all in one so I’ve been using a pipeline approach to receive the request, and then taking actions on the requests.”

    The U.S. and Australian governments decided in late March to delay the rotation due to restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision to resume the deployment comes as the government of Australia is granting an exemption to current travel restrictions to allow the 2020 MRF-D rotation to proceed, based on Australia’s record to date in managing impacts from COVID-19 as well as strict adherence by deployed U.S. Marines to the mandatory 14-day quarantine and other requirements.
