US & ROK Marine forces undergo intensive training in order to increase interoperabilityROK Marines
The situation in the Korean Peninsula is getting hotter every day.
Bent on creating weapons that could potentially reach the continental United States, North Korea has moved forward undeterred with its intercontinental ballistic missile program. As the crisis grows, all sides prepare for what could eventually be an all-out war.
This includes U.S. and South Korean Marines, thought to be among the best in the business.
In this video, U.S. Marines and Sailors, together with Republic of Korea (ROK) Marines, conduct training in South Korea.
U.S. and ROK Marine forces are undergoing the Korean Marine Exchange Program 17-11, in order to increase interoperability and combined capabilities of the ROK and U.S. Marine Corps forces.
Among other things, the Marines practice evacuating casualties aboard a U.S. Army UH-60L Blackhawk at Twin Bridges Training Area, and medevac drills with their South Korean counterparts to familiarize moving casualties aboard a helicopter.
