III MEF Resumes Waterborne AAV Operations
9 Jun 2021

III Marine Expeditionary Force has resumed Assault Amphibious Vehicle water operations, strengthening the capacity in the Pacific to conduct amphibious operations with the reintegration of rugged, tactical ship-to-shore connectors.

U.S. Marines with Company B, 3d Assault Amphibian Battalion, completed a demanding waterborne operations training package June 8, 2021 on Okinawa, Japan, in compliance with all updated policies and procedures, effectively returning an important capability to III MEF.

A thorough review of the processes and procedures related to safety, maintenance, and AAV operations was completed prior to the commencement of training.

“We completed a rigorous review to ensure we can operate our AAVs safely, protect our Marines and Sailors, and complete our mission responsibly,” said Lt. Gen. H. Stacy Clardy, commanding general of III MEF. “We will continue to mitigate risk while employing a ready and capable force to deter aggression and respond to crisis in the region in support of our nation’s interests and our allies and partners.”

Ensuring the safety of our Marines and Sailors is a very serious priority, and leaders are making sure everything possible is done to ensure safe and effective operations.
