    Texas native, U.S. Marine deploys to Australia

    “It means everything to me to know that I am helping people do their job. I rely on the people providing and working on the equipment that I use to do my job to properly take care of it, and people rely on me to work on their equipment so they can do their job. I trust someone with my life every day, so it’s extremely important the motor transport operators trust me with theirs.”

    While travel restrictions associated with COVID-19 delayed the deployment, more than 1,000 Marines will take part in this year's abbreviated rotation beginning June 2020. Deployments like MRF-D help cement the Australian-U.S. alliance as a vital element to regional security.
