The Essex ARG and 11th MEU took part in a multi-week training evolution with nearly 5,000 Marines and Sailors, providing an opportunity to plan and conduct operations as an integrated amphibious force.
“Over the last few weeks, the Essex ARG has demonstrated their ability to fully integrate with the 11th MEU team through the execution of a broad range of operations in the air, surface, and land domains,” said Navy Capt. John Barnett, commander of Amphibious Squadron (PHIBRON) 1. “With our ability to sea base anywhere in the world, integration of these areas alongside the Marine Corps allows us to provide unparalleled options for force projection and combined military operations anywhere around the globe.”
