I'm Lance Corporal Troy Saunders with your Marine Minute.

Marines with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit along with members of the Japan Ground Self Defense Force are currently participating in Exercise Iron Fist 2018. Iron Fist is an annual, bilateral amphibious training exercise, held in Southern California, designed to improve the Marine's and Japanese's ability to plan, communicate and conduct combined amphibious operations.

Also in the Corps,
Force Reconnaissance Marines with Maritime Raid Force, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit conducted Realistic Urban Training Exercise 18.1 in Guam, January 15th. The exercise provided Marines a unique training opportunity to operate in urban environments in preparation for the 31st MEU's regularly-scheduled Spring Patrol 2018.

On this day in Marine Corps history in 1951,
1st Marine Division began wrapping-up operations against guerrilla forces in South Korea, following the Division's return from its battle at the Chosin Reservoir.
