US Marine, Navy team to conduct joint training


THE US Marine and Navy team with Exercise Koa Moana (Ocean Warrior) 16-4 intend to conduct a joint military training exercise in Papua New Guinea this week.
The training will focus on capabilities in security operations to bolster the Papua New Guinea Defence Force’s (PNGDF) readiness for possible support to civil authority in national events.
Marines and sailors are expected to conduct bilateral training in policing procedures, non-lethal weapons training, motorcade tactics, and guard mount with the PNGDF.
The purpose of this exercise is to improve interoperability with the PNGDF, enhance military-to-military relations, and provide US Marine Corps forces familiarity to different types of terrain to improve their capacity to respond in the event of a natural disaster in the region.
