Making history while making a difference
The Female Engagement Team (FET) began in 2009 to help build relationships with Afghani women and children and gather information. The FET bridged crucial cultural gaps and successfully completed their mission in 2012.

The Taliban destroyed Afghani schools. Marines secured the region and rebuilt while Female Engagement Teams (FETs) grew trust in the community.
A DIFFERENCE THE WORLD WILL NOTICE
Standing up against tyranny and injustice are Marines: elite warriors who courageously and honorably face down the threats of our time.
Every Marine is a Leader
These are the leadership traits that enable Marines to lead with honor, on the battlefield and in the community.
The Marine Corps has been the expeditionary force called upon first because of its ability to provide the most rapid, effective and efficient military response to conflicts anywhere in the world.
“Let no man’s ghost return and say his training let him down.” We just finished our second at sea training exercise and our Marines and Sailors pushed through the gut-check that is COMPTUEX and left it all on the mat. The complexities of amphibious operations are many, but the value of projecting power from ship to shore and having a sea-based crisis response force is what our Nation needs. Check out some final photos from Composite Training Unit Exercise 2016.
“For a Marine, every training day at sea with the U.S. Navy is key in growing bigger, stronger, and faster as an Amphibious Ready Group/Marine Expeditionary Unit Team.” ~ Col. Clay C. Tipton, commanding officer, 11th MEU. Check out these Marines and Sailors as they conduct missions that all originated from U.S. Navy ships: long-range raid, direct fire artillery shoot, and a visit, board, a search and seizure!

No machine can match them Military working dogs and their handlers train together to keep the few and the proud safe during Large Scale Exercise 2016. Specialized search dogs are trained to find explosives and narcotics. Their sense of smell makes them more effective than mine sweepers, sonar and radar in finding such dangerous items.
Watch Marines Do What They Do Best ------------------------------------------- Marines with Kilo Company, Battalion Landing Team, 3rd Battalion 6th Marines and a platoon from 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion worked together to conduct a day raid Aug. 16, 2016 on Camp Davis airfield, N.C.
