Dual-use commercial small craft await inspection during the Marine Forces Reserve and Defense Innovation Unit Small Boat Evaluation and Demonstration event on Nov. 2, 2022, at the 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion headquarters in Tampa, Florida. This second phase of the DIU Commercial Solutions Opening process is used to determine which vessel(s) will be used by the Marine Corps Reserve in support of Service-level experimentation for Force Design 2030. MFR plans to use Congressionally-approved National Guard and Reserve Equipment Appropriation (NGREA) funds to purchase the initial order of expeditionary craft. Use of this funding will not impact MFR’s annual budget, nor will it hinder or delay any other areas of operations or innovation across the force. - Dual-use commercial small craft await inspection during the Marine Forces Reserve and Defense Innovation Unit Small Boat Evaluation and Demonstration event on Nov. 2, 2022, at the 4th Assault Amphibian Battalion headquarters in Tampa, Florida.

U.S. Marines with 6th Engineer Support Battalion Bulk Fuel Company B, 4th Marine Logistics Group, load gear on a vehicle at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, Mar. 12, 2022. The 6th ESB Bulk Fuel Company B focuses on innovating and experimenting on Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations. This training covers the new expeditionary fueling dispensing system to increase the unit's effectiveness and their mission readiness. Marines from 6th ESB have proven their ingenuity by creating a smaller and more agile fueling system from a much larger legacy fueling system. Their innovative efforts consist of swiftly staging low profile fueling points in order to allow forces the flexibility to flow quickly in and out of enemy engagement zones. - U.S. Marines with 6th Engineer Support Battalion Bulk Fuel Company B, 4th Marine Logistics Group, load gear on a vehicle at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey, Mar. 12, 2022.
