    Colton California-native U.S. Marine Trains in Brazil during Formosa 2023

    Blue Diamond Marine Lance Cpl. Hector Cortez, rifleman with Weapons Company attached to Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, gathers ammunition boxes while cleaning up the firing positions after Marines fired the M240 medium machine guns, Aug. 11, 2023, at the Base Expedicionária de Fuzileiros Navais in Formosa, Brazil, during the Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais’ (Brazilian Marine Corps’) annual Infantry Training Exercise Formosa. Exercise Formosa offers an ideal platform for the armed forces of multiple nations to enhance their interoperability, conduct joint military operations, and exchange invaluable insights on tactics and strategies. With the backdrop of an ever-changing global security landscape, the participation of the United States Marine Corps and militaries from multiple nations shows commitment to regional security and partnership. Cortez is from Colton, California.
