    U.S. Marines with Kilo Company, BLT 3/5, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), prepare a hide site during exercise Noble Union in the Central Training Area, Okinawa, Japan, Aug. 19, 2021. Hide sites such as these provide commanders the ability to have a low signature Combat Operations Center (COC) that can persist for longer periods of time without being detected. Exercise Noble Union is part of 31st MEU’s Noble Series of exercises which are used to validate or invalidate the Family of Naval Concepts, develop techniques and procedures for the employment of MEU assets in support of sea denial and fleet maneuver, and inform future force design and experimentation efforts. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform a wide range of military operations as the premiere crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific region.
