Australian Defence Force and United States Marines demonstrate benefits of combined training initiatives

Senior defence officials from Malaysia, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam visited the Northern Territory to learn about the United States Force Posture Initiatives and bilateral capabilities between Australia and the United States (US) last week.
As part of this visit, the group observed a bilateral exercise between the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and the US Marines, called Exercise Crocodile Strike. The exercise provided real-life scenarios to test how Australia and the US would work together in response to a humanitarian crisis in a regional location.
