U.S. Marines with Battalion Landing Team 1/4, 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, prepare to recover their combat rubber raiding craft on to the amphibious transport dock ship USS Green Bay (LPD-20) after a bilateral amphibious assault exercise with soldiers from the 1st Amphibious Rapid Deployment Regiment, Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, at Tokunoshima, Japan, March 3, 2023. The bilateral amphibious assault exercise allowed Marines and JGSDF soldiers to simultaneously secure austere terrain during Iron Fist 23. Iron Fist is an annual bi-lateral exercise designed to increase interoperability and strengthen the relationships between the U.S. Marine Corps, the U.S. Navy, the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force, and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force.
